The only way that makes sense to me is if you have been neglectful with oil changes. A cam should last more than 150k and metal-to-metal on what? On the cam? It has to have metal to metal for the lobes to push tappets. OHC, DOHC, I doubt you have a pushrod engine

preaty much what the ford guy said. Only way you will need a cam shaft is if you had a oil issue, constant low oil, Been using the wrong brand of oil or you been leaving oil changes to long betwen services. my car has over 367,000/k on it and i have cleaner then a whistle and excelent shape cams. They are probley jsut trying to get you to put money into your car. They have a regualr replacement scedule they go by for recommended replacements so unless you hear a loud ticking or grinding noise i would not worry about it.
