    Camshafts plural :lawl: (F23A1 has only ONE camshaft)? or Camshaft's (contraction for: "is")? How is it BROKE? That's highly unlikely. Please elaborate for any further response from anyone.

    I would check car-part.com for OEM replacements, or local junkyards. The cam is SO easy to remove.

    I really dnt know much how it broke I'm guess just the camshaft is broken. My dadsrove over something and my oil light came on. And then the check engine light. He drive it for about a week and the car doesn't start now.

    Check your oil pan. My guess is he punched a hole in it.

    Do you maybe mean crankshaft?

    Which still wouldn't make sense but is more likely what you mean?

    Maybe you should figure out what's up with the check engine light before you spend unnecessary money

    If he hit something, then the oil light came on, then check engine light, now your car wont start or crank - your engine is DONE. You ruined the crank bearings and other engine parts by letting the oil drain and likely seized the engine. If that's the case, then sorry for your loss.
