    Default boost sensor help?

    about 2 hours ago i followed the how 2 clean boost sensor. the pics of engine where different to mine as my egr valve assembly was directly behind the scre for the boost valve. i had to take the 3 bolts out of the egr valve bracket, and also the 2 bolts from the elbow joint of the egr to allow me access the boost sensor. the sensor was absolutely full of s**t. any way back to the point. put everything back and now when i turn my ignition on, the spanner light comes on, but then goes out when i start the car ??? is this ok ??

    You have the 120bhp engine - same as mine (oil cap on the left from the front) - that's the main difference on the sensor cleaning how 2 between the 150 and 120. I did the egr and boost sensor at the same time since i had to take the EGR off anyway... It's a nice little difference when its clean huh?

    just doing my egr and boost sensor as well as the new silicon pipes at the vacuum . the boost sensor is caked in crud ( polite version) and my EGR which i had renewed 6 months ago is totally caked .. cars been a tad sluggish and jerky lately so hopefully this was the problem
