Great thread...for me anyway. For the second time in my cars life I'm going to change the TDC sensor. Changed last one about 18 months ago. Just phoned dealer for price of TDC £25, that's not a problem but they now say that this part has been updated and I need to purchase a 'loom connector' so I can fit this new type TDC. Anyone heard about this?
I am new to the forum and saw your thread. Did this solve the starting problem. I have just bought a 2000 1.6 auto and having the same problem with starting.
