have replaced coil pack plugs and leads now been told it might be camshaft sensor that controls the vvc help please


You're definitely working your way through the ignition control system this way, but if it's not the coil, leads, plugs or compression then there's just three things left: cam position sensor, ECU and wiring. Alternatively you may be misdiagnosing a fuel fault as ignition misfriring, replace the fuel filter and check the fuel pressure.


new fuel pump and filter was fitted so I think it is the cam sensor but I cant replace till I get paid
