I took my Lag II for a diagnostic last week and paid 35.00 for the privilage of being told no errors showed up and the problem (revs dropping low and stalling) could not be diagnosed so not fixed.

I then read all about the job of the Top Dead Centre sensor and decided to remove it (it's very easy on a Lag II) and give it a rub and spray it with WD40.

Guess what.....problem solved!!! The car's revs do not drop below the norm and the car does not threaten to stall any more. I hope the problem stays away.

So the big question is....why can I, a novice, spend 30 minutes under the bonet costing me 0.00 but an experienced professional can spend 1 hour pressing some buttons on a computer, take 35.00 of my money and not fixing a thing. How annoying.

Does anyone think I should challenge the mechanic for a refund?

Thanks all.
Hi James, where is the TDC sensor located in the Lag II??? How did you get it out??? was there much work to it???
