Another crank sensor story - dont be cheap
I had some engine cutting out issues about a year ago, which caused me to change the crank sensor. In the end it was a problem with the engine fuse box not being pressed all the way together.
Bottom line is that I changed the crank sensor with a cheap one from eBay.
Then last week the engine nearly died on me two times on the way home from work, and the usual MCS failure came on both times, and the car stuttered several times without showing the error.
Safe back home I hooked up the computer, and read out the P0336 crank sensor code.
Next day I ordered a new crank sensor with Alfa, and installed it on Saturday.
Here is a picture of the old cheap sensor vs the new Bosch sensor, notice how the cheap one has cracked in the plastic.
When installing the new one, I made sure it was seated all the way in the hole before putting in the screw.
Just a word of warning, don't be cheap on the crank sensor.
