Hello all.

My wife had her camvelt snap on her way home from the school run

We got the camvelt all changed but when the car was brought back to us it still has problems

The only way to keep it going is to keep the revs up and not let it idle

The mechanic said it could be a liner slipped but has failed to let me know what this means so I thought i would ask people in the know

Can anyone shead some light as to what this maybe please

All help greatly appreciated

Yes he checked the valves and changed them aswell .

If he would of done the whole camvelt and valves surely he would of noticed this and now I'm worried about what this bill will cost as we paid 550 quid for parts and labour. But now this is something we don't know anything about price of the job?

it can't hurt to try cleaning throttle body, as my 206 some times did not like idling but doing this helped that (but my electrical fault may have caused it)

13 208 1.2 16v Vti (dads but I'm insured on it)

Or could it be they have timed it incorrectly (cambelt been put on incorrectly!)

I'd take the car back and explain it was fine BEFORE so why doesn't it idle since they repaired it .. and don't take any BS ..

Down to just the 1.4 HDi. Cayman Green 2.0i CC sold.
