    Default Z20NET, No Boost, Cuts out whilst driving :(

    Hi i have a 54plate 2.0 T petrol, i was driving the other day and all of a sudden the car just died and wouldent start, i left it for about 10-15 mins and it started, got it about a mile down the road and the same thing happened, spoke to my friend who is a mechanic and he advised getting a service on it, so next day i serviced the car, drove home fine.
    Next day driving fine, then boom... died again, this time in the middle of a roundabout lol
    Got it home and tryed to read codes but none were coming up, was advised to check the fuel regulator so my mechanic checked that, and it all seemed fine, went out to try the car and all of a sudden i have no full boost, car just limps and bangs.
    Managed to get a live test done on the car last night after driving it around for about 30mins and it finally produced and error code for the crankshaft sensor, but also my mass air flow meter wasn't registering any voltage, but it dident bring an error code up, car runs fine on low boost but as soon as you mash your foot into the floor it just limps at around 2500-3000rpm

    was wondering if anybody else has had problems like this and what you have done to resolve them

    can't say I have heard of anybody having that problem so far.. Seems you need to start with the crankshaft sensor though as you had a specific error for it.. Check the wires are ok first before ordering a replacement.. As for the MAF, take it off and carefully clean it first with some carb cleaner or a similar evaporating cleaner..

    I have just had that. See my post 'Z20net help appreciated'.
    My ECU commited suicide hence the cutting out, when you turn key again (without waiting) did all electrics come on but nothing else, no clicks, nothing?
    I have resolved that but am left with an issue where EML comes on after a while and boost cuts out. So far tried knock sensor, ECU, full service but still the same. All tech2 gets is error code p0325 (knock sensor circuit).
    If you find anything else let me know please!

    it does thanks.. I did not think it had one. To me knock sensor errors on the Z20NET meant look towards to the spark plugs and coils for these engines and after that try another Ion module...
