yes mate. got it all. all working aswell.

anyone shed some light on what's going on with my motor, it's ticking over smoothly at 1000rpm and every now and then (1 minute gap, 2 minute gap) it will miss fire. and it's sporadic aswell. hmmmmmm

it is set up to spark on the Z mark. the engine is running smoothly and seams ok - just once in a while it will randomly miss.

Ready to scrap this now and break it for parts. cant get it running properly and ive lost all heart in it. developed a new fooking problem now - alternator light is on at idle unless you rev it - then it starts charging. brand new alternator later and another £100 out of my bank balance and nothing has changed.

car runs rough and then cuts out. unless someone comes and helps me out now this car will be broken

yer iv replied on the other thread, its not that - its brand new and is making a really good contact
ive been out on it for the last 2hours checking all of the earths and making sure they are all there and all intact.
i have a thick strap running from the charger bracket to the body.
another on the gearbox to the n/s chassis leg
i have also ran an extra strap from the chassis leg to the inlet manifold earths
and an additional earth to the ignition amp to the chassis leg

when you say when you check the engine against the ecu - what do you mean?

check the pins go to the correct sensors on the engine and in the correct place. and also with the ignition on i checked the voltages/earths etc against the ecu on "power on"

timing belt isnt a tooth out as it is as Beavis timed it - all i did was changed the belt for a new 1 and when i did it i tipex'd the belt and the pulleys to ensure they went back in the same way.
blue temp senso is genuine brand new vag tested in a pan of hot water as per your diagnostic guide

"if you've toothed pulleys then i've seen a lot of g40's that the alternator light comes on until it is revved up even though it is outputting the right voltages" THATS WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT! anyone have this problem? it could be that its not spinning fast enough at idle.

still re-check the timing, people can make mistakes no matter how good a mechanic you think they might be.

I sometimes get the alternator light on when first started up at idle and a quick blip of the throttle gets rid of it and it stays off then.

I know this isn't of any help but mine used to do this with toothies on light on untill I just bliped the throttle a little then it went out giving out all the right voltages though !
