I had to do this on my Aurora. Easy to install, but I couldn't get the starter out of the way. Locate the part on your engine and see if you can get to it - just one bolt holding it in.

The issue is this though, once you install it, you need to run the engine through a "learn" cycle. I didn't have the tool to do it, so I would have had to take it in anyway.

The sensor is always located on the outside outside of the crankshaft on the body of the engine. you will see wire connection on the body.

Service engine soon light blinking /car backfiring and missing

If your check engine light is blinking, you can take your car to Autozone, Advanced Auto or other parts house and ask them to get the engine codes. This ios a FREE service. It sounds like your camshaft positioning sensor, Cam Positioning sensor is bad. This is how comuterized systems tell where the cam and crackshaft are to set the timing. It sounds like you have timing issues.

I have a 2001 European specs VW Golf 1600/16V engine. I keep getting the check engine lite. The car would not start untilled I replaced the ERG valve, Knock sensor and the oxygen sensor. after replacing...

Replace the Airflow Meter, then take off all those parts you put on. If you have a scan tool, the long term fuel trim is probably %25+Which is definately an airflow meter, but it's definately worth trying it anyway, they've had such a problem w/ them you can get one for under $100 easy.
