Re: Cam timing, maybe ?

Its not easy picking out abnormal noises from that video, but i think if you suspect the timing then its going to easier just to check it manually.

Re: Cam timing, maybe ?

So what about pilot injection, post injection and so on?

I don't see how this method can help you with timing analysis :?

Re: Renault Kangoo 1.5DCI, hard to start,rough idle for 3-4

Do you not feel if it was a timing fault you would get a cam / crank sync fault. No, why would it when camshaft is not monitored... You could remove vacuum pump if I remember rightly to visually check the notch position in the end of the camshaft. Might save removing the belt covers and engine moun...

Here is a Known good, LX55 UOR Kangoo Crank Cam Injector.gif one thing to remember with this engine set up, you are measuring the Cam signal from the fuel pump pulley.... so its not the camshaft... i would remove the timing belt and Camshaft pulley and check the locator for the pulley is not broken....

Very nice, I have not really paid any attention to plug resistance before, but may well have a look at that from now on. Good to see other tech's approach when faced with problem, well done in putting the study together and sharing with us...
