What happens when cam phasers go out?

What happens when cam phasers go out?

When gone bad without replacing, Cam phasers can destroy a VCT, causing the engine exhaust valve timing problems. Cam phasers can be stuck when the engine is running perfectly. A stuck cam phaser can cause damage to the intake and exhaust valves. Both valve timing problems can cause a loss of power.

How much does it cost to replace cam phasers?

Replacing cam phasers is not cheap. You can expect to pay anywhere from $800 to $2500 to get the job done by a professional. Of course, the exact cost will depend on several factors, such as the year, make, and model of the vehicle.

Can cam phasers be fixed?

Replacing phasers will sometimes cure the problem but often rattle comes back within a few months. The sure fix to phaser problems is to lock the variable cam timing by essentially turning the phaser into a fixed timing gear. The WMS Cam Phaser Lockout kit will solve the phaser issue permanently.

What causes cam phaser failure?

Low oil pressure can’t deliver proper power to the cam phaser at precise timing. It could be failure oil pump or dirty oil may lead to this problem. Clear oil makes sure the viscosity for the oil to generate proper oil pressure. Any debris or sludge will influence oil flow and pressure.

What year did Ford fix the cam phaser problem?

2004 – 2010 Ford F-150 (5.4) It ranged all the way from the 2004 F-150 after its redesign, all the way into the next generation until they moved away from the 5.4, instead moving to the 5.0 that replaced it in 2011.

How do you stop cam phaser problems?

The only sure fire way to avoid the phaser issue is to get a truck without the 5.4 3v. There’s not really any way to prevent it so to say. The best thing you can do though is keep regular service intervals.

Does the Ford 6.2 have cam phasers?

The system is designed to lower emission output, give a wider torque range, improve gas mileage, and improve engine idle. In 2004 and prior years, the GM 4.2L engine used the cam phaser on the front end of the exhaust camshaft.

Do I need a camshaft phaser limit?

The high spring pressure required for performance cams can overpower the actuator. If you want to upgrade your camshaft and keep the VVT system, you will need a Camshaft Phaser Limiter. If you want high performance from a bigger cam, you will need to delete the VVT system.
