What is it thats happening to the car? I have managed to get the cam shaft sensor off mine, next task in the crankshaft sensor which is slightly more difficult to get too.

They attract bits of metal shavings being magnetic which can affect the readings. Id strongly recommend he cleans it first, took 5 minutes and only 1 socket on my car but not sure about the V6 variant.

I just got quoted 42.23 for a 1.6 k, from my local motor factors place.

I would like to think kv6 would be similar price.
