Eventually the part has came
my Coolant temp sensor came the other day and i fitted it more or less straight away along with a SFI box seal(not involved in this problem but thought i'd tell you's anyway)
the revs on the car seem fine however its stinking of fuel and popping like hell in the exhaust. anyone know what this could be down to!?
i did take the negative off for around 5 minutes which i guess would have reset the ECU.
i know there is some argument about the lenth of time the negative lead needs to be off so to be honest i don't know if it has successfully reset itself.
> i did take the negative off for around 5 minutes
thats more than long enough for a motronic ECU.
If its a Simtec, then this method won't work.
whats the best thing to do if the car is overfuelling?!
what do i tamper with!?
could it be my superchip making it overfuel. don't slag me off for having one its been on the car since i've had it, i know there S_hit
Poss, chill be reet...
Wots ur fuel computer say? on average?
hmmm, tad low actually.
Mine is 28.8 usually, thats serious urban traffic with uprated fuelling etc
Superchip shoudlnt make that much difference though, could be lamdba is shafted?
Althoguh if you can afford it, leave it
27 is on motorways mate about a 40 mile journey, clock was reset b4 hand!
how could i check that sensor?!
nice price too £75.95, oh well, suppose if i test it and its FUBAR then i will purrrr chase one
nah, i got mine from local motorfactors - £40.
Thats poor, at 70 on the motorway mines getting 35-40.
any ways to test it??...will check topbuzz thats quite informative.
£40 aint bad
> £40 aint bad
proably a pattern part, I've found these don't seem to lat long. A BOSCH part from VX is about £120! I got mine for £65 (C20LET item) from www.lambdasensor.co.uk. They don't list all the BOSCH parts, for mine I had to contact them first, their noraml one they list (pattern part) was £55 anyway.
