    Hi John,
    Sorry, yes Engine Coolant Temp Sensor. Car was way down on power and not fuelling right. There is 2 pins on sender. One has the blue and white wire connected with black plastic connector. there is a second wire which has been hanging loose since I got the car. It is a black wire with red spade connector. I did connect it to the second pin but it didn't change anything in the dash or or with the dials. Would I be best to leave well alone? lol

    Hi John, if it's no problem could you email me a pic or 2 of the left side of your 7a. I'm having problems with my oil pressure sender. I want to check if the wiring is right. I changed the ECTS on bulk head last night and since then my oil pressure gauge has dropped to 0 on idle and oil pressure warning light flashes. Car is going perfect though. There is only one wire connected to oil pressure sender unit and one pin is free.
    Any help would be great.

    Will take a look, in the meantime I think if you disconnect the plug at the reservoir cap it'll save the warning beep and ( ! ) coming on.

    hi john,
    i need your help again, please!!
    the old 90 is throwing up a fault on the dash which looks like ( ! ) - no, it's not someone's arse crack - the book tells me that it's a brake or power steering problem..

    the brake pedal is great and there's no fluid loss in the reservoir. however, the power steering reservoir has a problem - there is a sensor (of course there bloody well is!!) which attaches to the green lid of the reservoir. when you unscrew the lid and lift it away, there is a central plastic spindle that should be attached to the inside of the green lid (which must connect with the sensor) that is about 2-3" long with what looks like a small white plastic float on the other end, the sinks into the power steering fluid.

    now, housed around this spindle should be a black spring that has what looks like a brass retaining plate, presumably to keep the whole assembly together when you lift the green lid off to check the fluid level.

    do you have the complete green lid and spindle spring plate assembly available to sell me? i only just got gene back from JL Engineering just now after james finding the correct plugs to attach his computer to (tucked behind the driver's side kick plate!), it's running better than ever, and was thinking on the drive home "i wonder what you'll do to me next, you gene hunt bastard of a car!"


    anyhoo, sorry for the rant!!
