Re: RuSZ' Stilo 1.8 16v Dynamic

Glad it's all diagnosed and sorted, but just to be a bit pedantic the problem was a Coil and not a Coilpack... a coilpack is a single unit that does the sparks for multiple plugs... diagnosing them needs a little more thought !

Nothing wrong with been pedantic. Haha.

Iím hoping itís sorted, the new isnít due to arrive until tomorrow

To be more pedantic, the technical term for these ones I guess is just an ignition coil. A coil pack uses HT leads to transfer the charge to the plug.

A coil pack with HT leads is difficult to diagnose. Did it once on an old Punto but taking the spark plugs out and insulating turning it over. Turned out the pack had failed and blown the ECU.

Single coils a bit easier, just like what I did, interchange the pack and see if the fault is consistent

Re: RuSZ' Stilo 1.8 16v Dynamic

Both new coils fitted. The faulty one and a random one (cylinder 2 & 3 changed)

Running absolutely sweet now. Took for a drive and now codes at all.

Planning 4 new coils and plugs in the summer now.

RuSZ' Stilo 1.8 16v Dynamic

Yay. New error code!

Sense the sarcasm... haha

P0120 - throttle/pedal sensor/switch position error

Time to strip, clear and potentially replace the throttle body.

Anyone know if the 1.8 16v throttle body is the same on any other models.

Thanks

P0120 = Throttle Pedal Position Sensor/Switch A Circuit Malfunction. The fault code relates to the primary (A) potentiometer circuit in the pedal, not the throttle body.

I believed it was sometimes down to the sensors on the Throttle Body.

If itís down to the circuit what fix would you suggest?

Re: RuSZ' Stilo 1.8 16v Dynamic

Strangely, I cleared the error and repeated how the error occurred.

Nothing!

It went all Italian on me.
