147 Cam variator causing control system failure? Newbie - Help needed!
Hello everyone, first post!
Ive got the standard cam variator problem on my 147 1.6 2002, engine sounding like a diesel and power/performance reduced. Only problem is would this cause a motor control system failure? Im getting that come up when the car is in low revs in a high gear meaning I have to drive in low gears at high revs, then when the engine has to work the control system failure comes on. Ive had two of the coils replaced and a whole new set of plugs as my local garage said I was having ignition problems, but this was VERY expensive and didnt really solve the problem. So just wondering is this control failure due to the cam variator that does need changing, and will be changed when it goes in for cam service in next week or so?
Would greatly appreciate your help, many thanks.
