Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2003 BMW X5 4.4i SUV needs either
new or rebuilt camshaft for parts and labor
idea of price, also will it hurt engine if I
continue to drive it

3 Answers


If the cams are failing I would not drive it at all. The cost will be high so get an estimate from an independent shop as the dealer cost will be far higher.


I would want to know why the cams are failing. Lack of lubrication? Fix the root problem when replacing the cams.

Thanks. How many labor hours will it take to fix or estimate on price of labor?
