Hi all,
My 2.0 litre 8valve has the follwing problems:
High co levels (only just scraped through an MOT pass)
Hesitation/misfire at low revs under load
Fluctuating RPM (only noticable above idle at steady throttle opening)

Any ideas?

Lambda sensor is usually the first thing to change and it sounds like your problem.

Welcome to the site, hope you stay around wink

You've done well to get away without changing it, had four on my twinny and on the second for the V6!

Err.......... eek! Perhaps its mainly the 16v'ers that eat lambda's then?

Another problem to add to the list :rolleyes:

Hmm... I hava a 16v and have not changed mine yet. The car did about 143000 km. Well maybe the previous owner did change it, but i got all bills from him and he claimed this was all the work done on the car.
And i know mine works ok, because last time when i had problems starting the logged error was water temperature sensor and lamnda, but when they cleared connectors the readings form both sensors were ok.

Before I sold mine (a couple of weeks ago) the lambda sensor and the cat had done 176000 and never gave any trouble.

I bought a 3.0 166 btw
