    VVT oil pressure sensor

    Looking for an oil pressure sensor, the one that screws into the VVT unit. It has a black connector and the locating lug is off-centre. Anyone got any info on where I might source the correct item ?

    Thanks in anticipation for any help !

    Roger that, so which is the pressure sensor ? is it the brown one ? Reason being, had fault code indicating VVT pressure switch and assumed it was that one.

    No the other plugs on the VVC housing are the advance and retard solenoids the only pressure switch is on the oil filter housing near the crankshaft pully. What was the P code number and distribution

    Hi JohnDQ, phoned my mate and got the codes, as follows.....P1520, P1522.
    He did, however say that he had written "Pressure" by mistake and it should be "Temperature", so I reckon I need to get hold of a temp. sensor and a cam position sensor.
    Would you agree with that ?

    What makes you think the cam sensor is faulty? Have you checked the resistance over the VVC solenoids out of interest

    No, I'm just going with what I was told from the diagnostic readout...apparently it indicated faults in both the aforementioned sensors. I do not have the diagnostic gear to check this myself, so I have to rely on what information I am given.

    Ok cool does the engine rev upto 7000rpm. If it does you probably don't have a fault with the VVC system

    Understood, thanks....I'll give it a try later today. Many thanks for your help with this, I obviously don't want to knack the engine before I have a chance to enjoy it ! :-)
