I'm having to re terminate a new plug on the loom side of the lambda sensor as the original is pig.

On the signal wire there seems to be a inner core wire and an outer casing of wire with plastic coating insulating them from each other. Looks a bit like the setup as you would see on a tv ariel.

How do i attach that wire to the wire coming out from the plug?

all lambda sensors i have seen are three wires single wrapped in a black sheath

if you have a tv aerial cable style cable it sounds more like the crank sensor unless i am much mistaken

All sorted now, i just paniced yesterday and didn't use my brain enough. After more indepth thought i came to the conclusion that the outer core is just there as a screening to prevent interference from other equipment and of course the 12v heater line it runs with along next to. It has to have this because the lambda only operates under milli volts.

Anyway sorted that and the car seemed a bit better but not as it should. I then tested my Throttle position sensor and its knackered! Fingers crossed that tomoz when the sensor comes all my problems i've been having over the last month will dissapear!
Also have low voltage on injector one valve, bad connection i guess?
As you look at the engine are they numbered left to right?
