hi

Greg :

Did you have the car hooked up to a diagnostic scan tool to check for malfunction codes

Greg :

If not i suggest you have the management system checked for malfunction codes . you may have a bad camshaft sensor but the malfunction code will confirm this or if another issue causing you this problem

Greg :

The cost of having this done is around 1hr shop labor time . if shop has £50 rate, then count on £50 ..

Greg :

If they confirm a bad sensor then depending on the sensor location and time to remove will be the deciding factor .some sensors need only a few minutes and other a lot longer .
