Question about 2006 Fiat X1/9
OK so we've had a bit of a nightmare recently with our 20v turbo coupe. It was close to 70k miles so being cautious, we decided to get the timing belt done (so as to avoid further damage to the engine if the belt broke while driving).
As you know, major job, so we also replaced the clutch at same time and after big payout for the labour, thought it was better than ever.
It drove for 2 days before letting us down. went to start it and it just wouldn't start.
It was hooked up to the computer and only problem that came up was the cam sensor.
Another engine out job, but had to be done.
Brand new sensor was fitted (had to be sent from Italy thru UK, to Ireland). The mechanic said they test drove it twice afterwards and it was fine. We went to pick it up and it wouldn't spark again. Exact same problems as before sensor was fitted.
Anyone had this happen to them before? Any ideas what the problem could be?
We're so frustrated, as the car was better before we spent all the money on it - should've left it alone!!!
(Spent about 3k on it now and hoping we won't have to spend much more)
Any advice much appreciated.
check sensor: disconect conector. you have 3 wires. first(green) and last(black) are suppy should be around 5V. if not check wiring.
If ok: conect conector and access conector terminals (or wires) and conect LED test lamp between terminal 3 (black) and 2 (also black).briefly krank engine. Check that LED flashes.
hope it helps
