:eek:I am trying to get my 1997 phase one back up to scratch, it was running fine apart from tyickover wich was at about 1500 rpm (way to fast) A friend of mine very kindly looked and swapped two connections over which are colour coded One connector Blue and the other One white Both 3 pin multi plug, When i noticed what he had done i switched them back (they were correct in the first place) since then the car will not start, I have Fuel in the tank, Today i removed aplug lead and plug then turned the engine over but there was no spark. (i think one of the connectors t(blue) goes to the cashaft sensor and the white one is the anti knock sensor so if these have been crossed what happens Help.:cry:
