i think u mean cambelt not shaft as i cant see that snapping. Though the answer for both is the same yea it will damge the valve's and pistons this is because the cam will stop and the crank will keep on goin.This means pistons will meet valves at speed (not good) sometimes on petrol engines there is enough clearance so the 2 wont meet but u dont stand a chance on a diesel.

There isn't a camshaft position sensor. If you are asking because of an error code you received, it is caused by a signal that mimics the same signal as a camshaft position sensor.

That could happen if the timing belt slipped time. Something similar happened to a Nissan 3.0 liter I worked on a couple years ago. If the timing only skips a couple teeth it may only be off in one place. The car I was working on had a worn out timing belt tensioner pulley that caused the problem.

depends on whether or not the belt has snapped,if not £250.00 should cover it,if it has then it depends on the amount of engine damage caused.

It's usually caused by improper break-in procedure, but can also be caused by burrs in the lifter bores preventing the lifters from revolving or improper break-in oil.
