Sodding thing gave me a right scare a couple of days ago. Leaving some traffic lights I gave it a boot full of revs then changed up thinking the rev limiter had cut in earlier than expected. Next thing, MCSF!!! And a beep every 30 seconds.

Now, if you said to me this had happened to you, I would diagnose the fault as being the wiring to a coil pack. Particularly if you mentioned that you've had them all off to paint the cam covers... But el panic here was convinced it was cam timing, "it's jumped a tooth, it's not misfiring at idle, it's not showing mcsf at idle, it's jumped a tooth"...

It was a coil pack. And despite the seller's most sincere assurances that the belt and tensioner have been recently changed, it's having new ones just for my own peace of mind. (The tensioner doesn't look like its new)
