just bought a 54 reg 1.5 almera and orange light came on 2 days later after having exhaust fitted.had to call AA out today because wouldnt start after i had been shopping and he said camshaft sensor had been broken and glued together and said he thinks it could be timing chain that has stretched. he removed sensor to start it

it always starts first time when its first used and runs perfectly until i turn it off.Going for petrol is embarrasing or shopping as it takes about ten minutes to start it.When i acquired it and went for petrol to drive it home it was fine.
Hi .
Did you replace the camshaft sensor and have the timing chain checked .as this is a very typical issue on this engine .
A glued together cam sensor is a sign of it getting damaged when work was done and super glued back together, so as not to have to pay for a new one .
You will keep having this issue if the two are nor replaced .
