Very poorly caddy , any help please?

Post by Leeoncupra » Mon Jun 14, 2021 11:07 pm

Hi all

Had a stuttering issue with my caddy when I got it , it's a pd130 swap

At the moment it sounds like its misfiring , stuttering even worse and will cut out going uphill as it has no power but isnt in limp mode it just keeps misfiring and stuttering

First i got a fault code p0341 so I fitted a new oem camshaft sensor

New oem sensor fitted and whilst cold it runs absolutely fine

When it gets up to operating temperature I can feel minor stutters when driving but when it's been warm for 10mins that's when the above happens

Now I'm still getting p0341 but also p0321 fault code

Surely it cant be the sensors again as it did stutter prior to replacing the cam sensor but now it's gotten worse and throwing a second code

This is possibly a wiring fault.
I've seen it before where a PD130 engine was fitted and the camshaft position sensor wiring was like a guitar string across the front and had pulled a terminal from the plug.

Thanks doc

I may get an auto electrician to have a look before I get the crank sensor replaced

I had very similar symptoms in mine. Took it to a local 'specialist' and ended up spending 1k+ and many months replacing sensors etc. Etc. In the end it was found to be the loom as Doc says. That is where I'd start.

Dont suppose anyone has a wiring diagram for the cam sensor/ crank sensor to ECU at all?

UPDATEEEE

Managed to find who built the van and he has diagnosed and repaired her for me

Turns out it was

Broken wire to fuel temperature sensor
Water corrosion in plug to crank sensor

After previous failed attempts to repair at other garages I'm over the moon ive had the van 3months and I can actually use it now

Thank you to everyone who has offered help and advice
