Hi, as some of you may know, my car had a lot of problems with the engine lasts months.
The engine is an old 2.4 JTD 10V 136BHP (AR32501).
Finally, most of the problems are gone after new camshaft, tappets, few pulleys, inlet pipe, new GENUINE Bosch maf (Fu** that "compatible" MAF, just made the engine to be laggy, noisier and raise up the fuel consumption) and an oil change (Selenia brand forever, now the engine runs a lot quieter).
However, the P1320 error, which appeared from time to time before, and ended being permanent (all was before I went for repairing) is still there.
The strange is that I never had an engine stop, it just lit the red injector light and ran in low power mode, something like 60 or 70bhp.
And never failed to start!
Before it became permanent, sometimes the error went while driving, it was a sudden explosion of power and turbo's "whoshhhh" and OMG watch the cops! :lol:
I checked the camshaft sensor with a multimeter and it didn't look open. All wires had
resistance between themselves (both in the car's connector and the sensor's).
Anyway, I ordered a new camshaft sensor, it's unexpensive (30 Euro, not genuine but compatible, the genuine parts cost 3 times that!). I'm waiting for it to come.
I read a lot of strange things around this error. Bad battery, crank sensor, cam pulley being broken...
The cam pulley is new, so not possible.
The battery is OK, recently recharged before trying to start the car for first time, because it was stalled for few months. The starter runs fast and the engine starts instantly. Discarded?
Crank sensor. How? I always was able to start the engine, and it never stopped. A bad crank sensor would stop the engine, right?
I'd like to know everything that would cause this error. I want to get rid of all the problems and get my alfa back asap! :thumbs:
