53 Plate Tdci 130 Glow Plug Light

5 posts in this topic

I hope someone can advise me with this problem. Traveling up the A1 tonight in the outside lane doing 70. Put my foot down a little and nothing happened except the glow plug light started flashing- no power. Managed to get across to the hard shoulder and realised the engine had cut out. Turned the ignition off then started it again as normal, pulled away and got home with no more problems. Before this happened I did notice that at lower revs the engine sounded a bit throaty, I dont know if this has any bearing. I would really appreciate any advice.

Cheers

George

No idea but did you get it sorted and what was the fault?

I had this problem a few months back, it's been linked to a few different problems and like you say, tends to come along once then disappear for a while once you've restarted the engine.

I replaced the camshaft position sensor and that did the job, about £18 altogether and a few minutes work.

Thanks for this info, I have got the new sensor but my Haines Manual doesn't tell me where it goes. Can someone please give me an idea so I can see if this works.

Cheers
