  1. We went with a black box so the insurance could track driving speed etc. It actually worked out quite well because 18yo old son was just pleased we paid his insurance and it meant he couldn't drive like an idiot which gave us some peace of mind - you're probably not worried about your daughter driving like a teenage boy but in my book anything that helps is good. His driving has been surprisingly good and after a year we got his insurance as part of a multi car policy for £765 on his Clio 1.6 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I changed the timing chain tensioner 4 weeks ago and it's still fitted fine as I checked when I swapped the CPS yesterday. Suppose I could remove it to make sure it's not sticking. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Swapped the CPS over today between banks 1 & 2 and the fault has stayed on bank 1 Think I'll have to get the car booked in to be looked at.
  4. Are you talking from experience or just basing it on the codes I've got? Would it do the engine any harm if I follow the DIS test and run the engine for 5 plus minutes? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. So I've plugged DIS in and got the following DME errors: 62 - Activation, tank-venting valve 21 - Function, inlet-camshaft control, bank 1 Diagnosis fault survey gives: 33 - Function, inlet VANOS, bank 1 98 - Activation, tank-venting valve Might this be CPS related, DIS tells me to run the engine for diagnosis but because the engine doesn't sound good at tick over I'm concerned about causing damage - any thoughts?
  6. I need some help and not sure how big a fix this is gonna be, the car is a V8 M62TU 2001 with 121,000m After a 50 mile trip yesterday I got the EML light flicker on a few times when I was about 15mins from home – the car hadn’t seemed as responsive as usual a bit earlier but I’d just carried on thinking it was my usual OCD but after getting home I realised the engine didn’t sound it’s normal quiet self so plugged in INPA and got 7 errors: 6 look bad: 33 Nockenwellensteuerung (Camshaft control) 62 Aussetzererkennung, Summenfehler, (Intermittent detection, Total error) 52 Aussetzererkennung Zyl.4, (Misrecognition Cyl.4) 55 Aussetzererkennung Zyl.3, (Misrecognition Cyl.3) 57 Aussetzererkennung Zyl.2, (Misrecognition Cyl.2) 50 Aussetzererkennung Zyl.1, (Misrecognition Cyl.1) Each one says Error currently available and includes some other info. The Camshaft control says Adaptation value late stop not plausible current & Adaptation value Stop not plausible Initial. Obviously one bank is not performing and I’m hoping this isn’t as serious as it looks so hoping for some input from the experts! The last code is 98 Tankentlueftungsventil Endstufe (Tank venting valve output stage) – I get this every time I run the codes so not too bothered. Error report attached. The car always runs great and all normal maintenance is up to date, yesterday I started the car and the low fuel light had been on and the computer said I had 40 miles to go, engine didn’t feel as good as usual but thought maybe low fuel so filled up with Shell as usual and thought nothing of it until later. Engine ME7.2 M62 210417.xps cheers barry

  13. I've just bought some active seats that say they come with the wiring but would you be able to help out with those if needed? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Nice work, I thought bixenon meant you had high & low beam in the same housing so is that what your fogs are? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
