Hi, my 05 plate 2.0 vvt has done this today but started after 2 attempts (turns over but sounds like no spark or fuel starvation) I have just bought this from a private seller who has had it from new but has hardly used it for a few months due to buying a new car. Where is the tdc sensor on this engine so I can clean it?

thanks in advance

Hi there all,

How do I tell if my 04 scenic 16 v is VVT ? This is probably the dumbest question here. Sorry I'm really new to all this

Thanks in advance

tdc sensor

Hi, I tried taking the tdc sensor out and cleaning it, done that and still nothing, not even firing on 4 cylinders, seems like it is only on one...smokes heavy blue smoke whilst starting up previously and on tickover for a few mins, then cleared and ran fine. Only seemed to happen when cooled down for a few hours, like at work. Now wont start at all. 54plate 1.5dci, soon to be swapped for a Ford?land rover freelander (BMW diesel NOT petrol).
