Re: New alternator

When an alternator fails it fails internally so you wont see anything with an external examination.

Re: mgf died

My only experience of valves and pistons kissing (and resulting in bent valves) was defiantly audible but I was next to the engine (not my fault, someone else screwed up a belt change). Care to explain, do you know what went wrong? So the rest of us don'y repeat the mistake. Did they try and do it ...

Re: ABS warning light

I don't think it is version 5.0, I think you have 3.5 or 3.7.

Try all the versions through the pscan.

Whereabouts are you, if not too far I may be able to come and have a look.

Re: mgf died

(I didn't want to jump start the car, Gary, in case it was the cam belt and I did more damage, but thanks for suggestion). You would know about it if the cambelt went while driving, there would be a lot of noise.......... No, you wouldn't. I've had a cambelt go and there was no perceptible noise. O...

Re: mgf died

I would say... the lead that connects to the gearbox has snapped (did this on my MG ZS a while back with similar symptoms)... Worth a check and easy cheap fix if it is! I had similar on my ZS a while ago, the bolt holding the earth to the gearbox (and the clutch slave bracket) was loose, problems w...

The gauge sensor has a blue plastic cover.
It has a plug with one wire.

The ECU sensor has 2 wires and is either brown or black depending upon which ECU is fitted.
