Re: Cutting out when hot

I have never had to find the ecu, but feel sure that the Menders know exactly where it is! Had the exact symptoms that you describe with my wifes MK2 last year. It turned out to be the camshaft sensor, an easy cheap fix.

Re: Forever Cars

Well I can understand this. We have no plans to sell the MX5 and I have owned this Chamois for 31 years.

Re: What have you done to your MX5 today/yesterday?

I have been busy checking out the California prior to taking it for an MOT, also doing those non MOT related jobs that I promised myself would get done over the winter, but didn't! For the MOT it needed new front tyres and a centre exhaust. The other jobs are purely cosmetic. Cleaning up some rust s...

Re: Spitting Copperslip

Had an 09 plate beetle in today, owner said brakes were getting hot. No wonder, calipers were fine but pads siezed solid in the hangers. By the signs of the heat being generated, maybe explains the total absence of any copper grease as would normally be expected. Some people dont deserve a car!! Fu...

Re: Intermittent engine cut out

Does it have a camshaft position sensor? Our MK2 had the same issue earlier this year and that was the problem.

Re: What have you done to your MX5 today/yesterday?

Finished the electric window conversion on my wife's MK2. Drivers door window now electric, with the correct door card, passenger side door card to follow. I also managed to get a MK2.5 window switch, with the drivers side auto function, fitted and working. You just have to reverse all the wires in ...

Re: What have you done to your MX5 today/yesterday?

Converted the passenger door to an electric window. I will do both doors eventually, but having received a switch and n/s regulator I couldn't resist making a start. Very easy job,just plug and play, all the wiring already in place from manufacture. I put a grommet in the door card for now, whilst I...

Re: NB 1.6 Cutting out or not starting. Heat related (Fixed)

Wife returned from work, 10 minutes later I went to the car and it wouldn't start (as expected). Fitted new camshaft angle sensor, car started straight away :-D
Thanks for the help. :obscene-drinkingcheers:

Re: NB 1.6 Cutting out or not starting. Heat related.

I have just checked for codes and there is only 1, which is 1345 SGT/SGC Signal. I am not sure what this means, but a quick google seems to still be pointing at the cam angle sensor.
What do you guys think?
To be clear, the car is a MK2 California 1.6 on a 2001 Y plate.

Thanks Simon.

Re: MOT Failure on CO emissions.

Did they persevere with the test? I only ask because our car failed this test, but the tester kept it revving for what seemed like an age, because he said the cat wasn't hot enough. Sure enough he got a pass in the end.

Re: NB 1.6 Cutting out or not starting. Heat related.

Okay, thank you for all the replies. I will get an led kit next week.
I've been busy sorting out my wife's other car this week. A Land Rover Discovery 3, that relay could be a troublesome beast!

Re: NB 1.6 Cutting out or not starting. Heat related.

It's a late mk2 so no obdII. Will try and do some checks this weekend, I don't think it will be damp, but I will look. Are there 2 coil packs or is that just one unit! The engine never runs hot, but this seems to happen when there is no airflow around the engine, on warm days. Is it worth getting an...
