This car will start with difficulty, sometimes 10 - 12 cranking attempts, then it will idle fine but will cough and splutter when revved.
In the short time I had, I could not identify the correct engine code but can confirm the control unit is a Delphi DCM 3.5
Each time it will throw a P0335 CKP Code. If I disconnect the CKP the engine will die instantly, no surprise there!
I got this capture back probed at ECU
This has a Magnetic Phase Ring, not "teeth" on the Crank. A 3 Pin Hall Effect Crank Position Sensor.
I have heard all about the history of this fault, I don't believe any of it so wont bore you with that.
What I do know, looking at invoices from Ford Dealer is that it has had a Cambelt, Timing Chain in the Head, a Magnetic Crank Phase Wheel. Then Advised that it needed a new ECU and Software Update .....
The Extra Missing "teeth / tooth" looks Wrong to me ? If this was a weekday I would have ordered another and fitted it but being the weekend I am unlikely to get one until Tuesday
Normally I would not have to ask this question, but it has already been fitted with a New Genuine Ford CKP Magnetic Wheel at the Dealer. That has made me Question & Doubt myself.
I believe the Magnetic Wheel is faulty, I don't see a Correlation / Synchronisation Issue ? Can anyone confirm whether my Diagnosis is good or bad ??
