picked my car up today from tilbury...slight problems.......as expected my R32 gtst sounds like a scooby.........(missing a cilinder) So I'vechanged the plugs...no result...same....
anything else I can check....and hicas lights on..
also found code 34 knocking sensor...everything else seams ok....
apart from the steering wheel not being straight down when going in a straight line maybe they swaped it back over...and didn't put it on quite right

Plus 3 new tyres needed..

Not the best start to our relationship but 11 yrs old things go wrong.............

(the cars standard...nothing done )

Hi there,

Several things could be wrong. I would check the coil pack to see if they are all working. Easyway to do it is to pull one of at a time to see if the engine drops a cylinder. You`ll soon see which ones are a problem. Then if they all work check the injectors are working in the same way or use a multi meter (needs to be a automotive one)

If you find its a coil pack not working swap it ove with another cylinder and see if the fault moves over to the cylinder, if the fault remains check the wiring at both engine and ecu end !!!

Hope this helps

Oh and the Hicas could be a dodgy speedo conversion!!! I think you can check the codes on the Hicas like you can with the ECU.

I'm no expert but;

misfire: a coil pack may be faulty theres one on each spark plug, swap them round and see if the missing cylinder changes this may cause misfire (and maybe even the knock sensor error)

hicas light: aftermarket wheels need boss adapters or it gets confused. if your wheel isnt on straight this will upset it as well. also hicas also doesn't like low battery levels so give the battery a good charge reset the hicas making sure sterring wheel and road wheels are all in straight ahead pos

when mine turned up it had a faulty relay and wouldnt start at all! but then abbey were on the case ... nuf said

good luck anyway, someone who knows a bit more than me will probably come along in a bit .....
