    :( Harrys sick

    .....one word says it all.........lambda sensor grrrrrr!! couldnt figure out on fri why eml came on and wouldnt go off..? then having only done 39 miles and used quarter of a tank of fuel, and wouldnt tick over right but at higher revs was fine, seems the plug for sensor ( rear one) had worked its self loose when repositioning exhaust and noticed yesterday...so harry is hopefully gonna get sorted today as i dont want to run him like this dont fancy having irrepairable damage done eeeeeeek! cant believe been such a choob lol never had any bother before in all the exhausts thats been fitted before

    thanks..harry's still not right yet....couldnt find an exact fit for lambda sensor yesterday at local scrapyard...just thought try 2nd hand one first....and going by the amount that are damaged before a decent working one was found must be a very common thing then?...anyway thought we'd try a sensor from a 2.2 vectra (diff plug) same wiring (4 wires) so did a cut n join job, its not made any difference yet ie not got fault code cleared..and i wonder if the fact it was out a 2.2 would make any difference? as I know that some vectra's zafira's n meriva ones will do aswell, and would it have to be specific to engine size e.g out of a 1.8..?hopefully getting one later tonight, and getting fault codes cleared..fingers crossed harry will be better tonight
