Bad Camshaft Solenoid?
Long time reader, first time poster.
I'm considering buying a 2001 S4 for cheap. The catch is that the owner says the camshaft solenoid is bad and as a result it doesn't run. I'm trying to figure out the possible damage done to the engine if the cam adjuster went out while he was driving. I know the work is going to cost a pretty penny, but I don't mind doing it if the engine wasn't wrecked in the process and after the new solenoid is put in I won't run in to any other problems (specific to the cam adjuster going out).
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
