Default 2008 partner 1.6hdi cutting out..

Discussed this a couple of weeks ago and still no nearer a conclusion.Done all the obvious stuff,connectors etc and used my OBD2. Been advised to have a Planet session to look a bit deeper into it. Im pretty well up on electronics and computer literate so thought it may be more cost effective to get a diagnostics kit - why pay the same for one garage session when I can have the facility for as long as I keep the van!

What would I be looking to get if I were to browse an auction site and would something from that site that may be chinese based be capable of doing the job - Ive seen kits from around 54. Any one with any experience of these?

After much head scratching and a Planet diag(which showed little was amiss with the engine - nice to know with a 150k block..) .. it was the Crank-sensor connector. I had the connector apart last week and cleaned it out but the problem persisted. Today I did the one thing that I know I should have done weeks ago and that was to waggle the plug whilst the engine was running. And there you go.. it did it on demand, every time. All it is is a slight bad contact on what are now worn connectors. Those plugs also rely on a snug fit within the socket which is provided by the sealing strip. that had come loose which allowed play in the plug/socket. It is also a 90 degree connector and it isnt potted so the cable can move around in the boot. I filled that with compound and stopped the movement. Should be ok now. The moral of this story is, in 99% of the time its the most simplest of things that cause some of the biggest problems and its always a tendency to over-complicate and blame the electronics when they are pretty much the most reliable part of the machine..

Many years ago I was a young engineer in the Oil industry and spent 4 hours pulling an ROV apart, causing 6 hours of vessel down-time in a force 8 storm only to be asked jokingly by my senior engineer " you did check the mains fuse didnt you Chris". He went away and I then I checked what I should have checked 4 hours previously. It had indeed blown.

Some people learn the hard way.

Keep it simple because it usually is..
