Check earth / grounding for both units. If no good invest in a cheap OBD fault code reader and go from there

Most common cause of jerking is a misfire but that would be likely to switch on the engine check light.

Certainly it would be a good idea to check if any faults had been recorded by the obd system and it would do no harm to check the spark plugs and replace if necessary and while the bonnet is open carry out a thorough visual inspection of the pipes, wires and cables and all electrical connections as a matter of good practice.

Without a more detailed description of the jerking it is difficult to make any other suggestions.

The information should be in your owners manual. But lacking that, a Chiltons/Haynes manual has the answer to your question. Find one that covers your vehicle make/model/year. Granted, this is an American publication, so whether they publish for/in UK etc is beyond me. You might try eBay

Guessing just wastes money . have the fault codes read first and find exactly which sensor/s are causing you a problem
not all faults energize the engine light and remember the engine light also refers to problems in the transmission

Could be a couple of things wrong..the best way is to hook in a fault finder to retrieve fault codes

and look and count them.? sure you can, at any time.

depends on.
  1. engine type and country. (some countries require smog sensors)
  2. body type and options on body.
  3. Factory climate controls have that too.
  4. Air bags

opel. 1.6L

if the PCM scans ,cranking for 5 long seconds , does NOT throw
CKP sensor bad DTC errors, id bet its good.
why not trust the PCM to see those missiong pulses and tell you;.
call EFI gas cars do this. and do it well.
the crank sensor on all engine can be in 3 spots.
front,. rear and middle of crank.
a fast look finds this easy.
did you even look?

1.6L dont say much. there are 7 , 1.6L opal engines.
Z16SE/X16SE 62 (5400)/138 (2600) Z16XE/X16XE 74 (6000)/150 (3600) Z16XEP/X16XEP 76 (6000)/147 (3600)
if hell bent on swapping it out, why not buy one, ?
they will ask you engine exact name(above) or VIN and sell it to you
then look at the connector, id bet you can find it , on the engine now
with knowing the pin count and shape.
on some harder cars, FWD, the sensor takes removing the transmission to see the sensor. bolted where not easy to change.
that is why we do the tests. first. not guess.
got a scan tool ?do the tests. ask.


wild guessing see the gold looking sensor. this might be it.
