Do you have your VIN number "vehicle identification number"? and i'll see what i can find.. im asuming its VTI engine
207 GT TURBO CC
Hi..there..thanks for that..
It will be under engine speed sensor - ive located the diagram based on your engine you have..its actually located under the starter at the back lower part of the engine as it bolted to the gearbox bellhousing - located behind that plate as in the pic you'll see the wiring disappear into..the sensor itself is held with one star bolt....if you havent looked there upto now then that would be the next place to check..as far as the sensors goes "crank position/engine speed sensor" on that engine that about the only place/area on that engine it will be...i do hope this helps
The sensor is on the other side of the engine. Sorry
Where exactly on the other side then? considering ive worked on these before..and I have your engine diagram
Apologies, I was passing on info from hubby and he now says he misread the diagram and yes it was by the starter motor. He just cant now figure how to get the starter motor out!
Happy to change my response.
thanks Robert - we now think it is not the knocking sensor. There is a rumbling/knocking sound all the time, but seems to go at higher speeds. The engine fan is now constantly on as well. Although Paul thinks he may have left something unclipped was last week.
If the fault as per what you describe wasnt there before..then i would certainly retrace the steps taken to get at the crank sensor..there is of course your thermostat housing on that side of the cylinder head in which it should have the temp sensor on it unless it intigrated which is the old type..ensure the plug connections to that are plug in..because if the sensor is unplugged then the ecu puts it into default mode and the fans run at high speed all the time even from cold unless the sensors at fault..so certainly check that temp sensor or 4 pin plug connector depending on what thermostat housing you have there... as for the rumbling/knocking..hard to say without hearing it..could be engine missfire .have you made sure the knock sensor hasnt been disturbed..as th
