Cav Sri16v Ecotec 1994
Hi, just joined the forum!! Can anyone help me with the above fault? Is it really a problem, or just a duff sensor?
The ECU light comes on sometimes when I start the car, but then I switch off and start again and it doesn't re-appear. The light only comes on sometimes when I start and then stays on til I "reboot" the car! (ie. switch off and on again! Works with Computers Don't it!!)
Got some prices today from Vaux. Cam sensor will cost me £47 + VAT, but to fit it they want £90!!! They say it takes 1.5 hours, but I reckon even if it takes me 4 hours it's like paying myself £23 an hour to fit it!!
How easy (or difficult) is it to change the Cam sensor and.....where is it???? Obviously somewhere at the top of the engine I guess!
Will changing the Cam sensor actually get rid of this fault, or will I be p*ssing money up against the wall? Also, I read on cavweb that Vaux have admitted there is a prob with the design of this particular sensor, does that mean that if I buy a new one it will be a modified one and not give me the same fault??
Hope someone can help me!!
