    Vehicle : 1.8

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : Petrol

    Year : 2004

    Default Car now starts...still got some error codes.

    Hi all,

    Further to this thread...http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=161324

    I've replaced the Crankshaft Speed Sensor and the car now starts and runs fine in the short time I had to test it and all fault lights have extinguished.
    However on checking the fault codes again using the pedal trick it's still showing some codes, 1 old, 1 new and the crank fault code which I'm presuming now needs clearing.

    The codes that are now left are:

    Old code: P0170 (fuel trim malfunction <bank 1>)
    New code: P0100 (mass or volume air flow malfunction)

    And the crank code of P0335 (crankshaft position sensor 'A' circuit malfunction).
    Out of interest would the ECU not realise that the sensors been changed and should for all intents and purposes be no working correctly (genuine VX part) or is there a possibility there's another fault here, the car would not start prior to change and is now fine...is it just a case of having codes erased and seeing if anything comes back?

    As for the other two new/old codes I'm guessing they are pointing firmly at the MAF calling it a day, however before I spend yet more hard earned and lose yet more skin off my knuckles is there anything I need to be considering or looking at?

    Cars a 1.8 btw.

    Cheers.

    Vehicle : Insignia 1.8 SRi

    Trim : VX Line Red

    Engine : 1.8VVT

    Year : 2011

    Default

    I had an 0170 fault thrown up on my old 1.8LS and it turned out to be the EGR in the end. I replaced the MAF and the front Lambda sensor to no avail, and eventually cured it by taking the EGR off and giving it a really good clean with carb cleaner.

    Car was starting and running, but was pretty chuggy/rough when cold for the first few minutes.

    Might be worth trying.

    Cheers, something to check...need to find a pic of it location now, not really looked around this engine at all, generally can't be bothered these days, but just can't afford the prices the garage wants to possibly sort things.

    Early z18xe engines had them, but they were phased out I believe. Your original post didn't state age so I thought it might be worth a mention.

    Didn't think to mention tbh, thank for taking the time though as it could have been.

    May just bite the bullet and buy a MAF, don't particulary won't to though!
