I took the TDC sensor out the following weekend when i had time, cleaned it once more - replaced and no improvement.
Any thoughts out there on what next to do?
same has happened me with this intermittent starting - my car is 2005 renault scenic dci 80. local garage did diagnostics and only tdc sensor came up faulty. it was replaced with new one but did not make any difference. in fact it is probably worse than before. does anyone know what else could be causing this issue?
