my 2002 MX5 is giving me a real headache and costs are piling up. I bout it about 2 years ago and it was fine for the first year it now keeps throwing em lights. When put on diagnostic it says air flow sensor (replaced that) cam shaft sensor (changed that) cam shaft angle sensor (changed that) I have replaced all the sparks/plugs and the alternator but I still have the same problem. Loss of power, juddering, not starting very well then out of the blue just stopping completely. the car has 'eaten' the belts twice and now it wont start at all. Battery tested that's fine. all lights come and turns over but wont catch. It has a k&n filter that was on it when I bought it. I heard that this can cause problems. I am not knowledgeable enough to look after this kit properly if it requires oiling etc. Could this be caused the problems with loss of power and sensors? thank you

Hello, I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
So testing the ECU is not the same as having the diagnostic done and reading the code?
Can you explain it fully to me please.
How much is the testing of ECU likely to be and do you know where I could get that done in my area? Redditch. Thanks
The ABS light came on too. Does this have any baring on the ECU theory? It has never come on before and it was directly before the EM light came on.
Do you know how much ECU testing is approx? Thanks
Thanks. And then what should I expect? Do they reprogramme it? Does that cost extra. Is it likely that it would need replacing? I just want as much knowledge as possible so they don' try to rip me off. Thanks
