So, (sigh), My question is this
question!?!, more like a howling mad scream!)
a fault code of p1320 (open circuit at camshaft sensor), combined with a top end tapping/ knocking, but no drop in performance, and still starting well - could this be caused by a mistimed timing belt, maybe one/two teeth out?
I only ask because (so far) my Italian mistress has had: new cam AND crank sensor, timing belt replaced (inc pulleys/tensioners), tappets shimmed (hardly needed, but I like her to be right), two injectors, wiring from ecu integrity checked, water pump, good 2nd hand ecu swap and new battery tried all to no avail.
Just finished an oil/ filter change and replaced fuel filter and thermostat, cleaned every electrical connector I could find, checked all fuses, (but not all relays yet, only some), checked loom for obvious damage, connectors to ignition switch -all good.
I did find the earths to the body fairly corroded, so have cleaned those and replaced bolts but still getting engine management light and tapping/knocking, similar to Hollow point's post titled Knocking sound 2.4 jtd ( sorry there is no direct link, but have no idea how to sort that!)
Back to Longstones 1st thing tomorrow for new aux belt, tensioners, bottom crank pulley ( little bit wobbly)Might ask Simon to double check timing, relays and crank sensor signal, since injector pulse all comes from there, I believe. Maybe new camshaft sensor is duff- anyone else had that? Or do I need to clear the fault to correct it, via diagnostic? Please help. Hate it when my Alfa plays up, 150,000 miles with two problems and now this. Bugger. Anyhow, keeping the chin up, I know somebody here can help me sort her out, please, please, pretty please!!!Sorry 2:30 am - getting a bit punchy.
Let's hope tomorrow sees her sorted
