Re: 340 1.4 ignition problem

New (used) sensor installed. I let it run for 10-15 minutes and it didn't stop :)

That's still plenty enough. Then i checked the TDC sensor resistance. It was abnormally high (around 1.8 kilo ohm) and as it ...

Re: 340 1.4 ignition problem

Thanks for you suggestions. As volvodspec said, I'll try to check for the spark from ignition coil (before the dizzy) the next time I go for a ride (to eliminate the dizzy). I'll also check the temperature of the coil and the signal from the sensor when the motor will not start again. Yesterday i re...

Then it starts to "kick" every few minutes while driving. After some time, it stops and i can't start it again. Last time after it st...
