    Default Camshaft Leak

    Sorry posted this in the petrol tuning, which was the wrong section (idiot) as I found troubleshooting!

    Right have mentioned this before went to the stealers to have some work done paid over the odds, lesson learnt. I do still have an oil leak near the camshaft, can't really tell exactly where unless its taken apart so just after some advice. Having a 2nd opinion from a friend they said its not exactly splashing over the floor so can leave it for now. VX quoted me £280 to fix it, not sure if thats a rip off or not? Is it a huge job to strip that down and will it require a new cambelt or if not is it worth fitting a new cambelt a bit earlier down the line. Also anyone know the price of the kit from vx?

    Just for reference - Vectra 06, 1.8 VVT, 25k Miles

    Many Thanks

    Vehicle : Jaguar XF 3.0D V6

    Trim : Black

    Engine : 3.0D V6

    Year : 0000

    If the price is excessive or not depends on what the problem is. Maybe a few more clues are needed from you in order to better advise.

    Any photos? Have you tried cleaning the whole area and keeping a check on it to find the source of the leak?

    I'll try and get under the car for some pics, bit hard to see as the cover where the cambelt is covers it, but looks to be quite low down. Sorry not very techincal I know.
