Re:


Got a call from the auto-elec today and the car is up and running again.

Cam sensor was apparently no good. This was the first thing we looked at and changed (along with the crankshaft sensor) right back at the start. My mechanic who changed it insisted the sensor was not the issue after running some electrical tests way back at the start.

This all makes me wonder whether all the extra stuff actually needed doing or if we were heading down the wrong path entirely with the other repairs.

As I understand it, A timing chain would only exist in 2 states, in time and out of time (ie chain has slipped on timing cogs), so for my mechanic to suggest the timing chain was out then that was something that needed to be fixed in any case.

Not that confident that the heads needed machining and piston rings replacing at 75k km's, but I have read of some issues with X trail piston rings so I might be able to give that one the benefit of the doubt.

Will certainly take my car somewhere else in the future though as in this case getting a friend to do it was pretty draining.

In any case, I look forward to driving my X trail home tomorrow!

Re:


Hey ,

Sorry to re-hash an old post, but this problem that crventura had was about as close to mine as I can see

Same fault code P0340
Takes 4-5 attempted starts before the engine will kick over (it will kick over rev up and then lose all revs and stall)
Engine will kick straight over if I keep the accelerator pedal pressed on start up and give it a few hard revs
Engine doesn't like cold weather
The Exy is using up a fair bit of oil atm

I've change both cam and crank sensors - should I be looking at Throttle Position Sensor?

TIA

Wish it were a diesel... But this isn't bad either :)
