Failing the doorstep
Join Date: Aug 2016
so, with brand new temp sensor clenched in one sweaty hand, and a good used MAF in the other, I approached the car.
Wrong sensor, mine is a four-wire and the replacement is a two-wire. Oh well, they will change it for me.
Fitted the MAF with the no problem, car started, ran for a second, spluttered & cut out. It was low on fuel plus my drive is sloped (car is parked nose down), so I sloshed another 5 litres in, and tried again. It just wouldn't quite catch and it was obvious that the battery was dying. So the battery is on charge, the temp sensor is on it's way back to be swapped for the correct one and I'll try again tomorrow...
