Re: fault code p0180

I had that code up, deleted it & it hasnt come back in 4 weeks. Like yours, my car was driving perfectly normally. If it comes back I'll investigate further.

Re: fault code p0180

If it's the same as the Stilo JTD, it's part of the fuel heater device as in this diagram.

Bear in mind that fault code P0180 = Fuel Temperature Sensor A Circuit Malfunction. So the fault could be the sensor or the wiring or connector to the sensor.

Re: fault code p0180

hi thanks for the replys
my filter dont look like the one in the pic but next to the filter is a red and yellow wiring plug that is just tucked out the way not fastened to anything and i cant find were it belongs so i wonder if the heater has been removed or just disconected
also would it make any difference to the fuel economy i seem to be doing pretty well for fuel so dont think it could affect it but i bow to the people on here who know a lot more than me about the dobbys

many thanks again for taking the time to help
paul
