The emissions are high on my Peugeot 207 sport 1.6 16v 57 plate. The diagnostics have said new dephaser sensor dephaser pully and cam position sensor costing £512 to replace and fit. Does this seem right to you seems a bit expensive to me thanks for your help.
My car has 54000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.
Hi there - I think there are perhaps 2 problems here. the excess fuel, white smoke issue is not likely caused by a cam phaser problem. This seems more like a rich fuel mixture issue - leaking injector(s), or malfunctioning coolant temperature sensor. Cam phasers are somewhat expensive, and require re-timing the camshaft(s) to the crankshaft, a tedious procedure requiring special tools. I would ask the mechanic to distinguish between these 2 different sets of symptoms. For a trusted 2nd opinion, I recommend an engine inspection performed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
