Yup, I'd say cheapo-crapo cam sensor, fact it ran fine for a while suggests this as well. Seen time again cheap non-genuine sensors cause this, with GM sourced ones being far more reliable.

Normally around 70-80 for it.

The Crankshaft sensor was a Lucas one. The problem is do I spend 80 on a Vauxhall sensor with no guarantee that's the problem.

The car is driving me mad now. Feel like beating it with a tree branch like John Cleese in Faulty Towers.

With a problem like this, just chucking bits at the car has no guarantee of success. Methodical section by section, system by system is the only way. I assume all the things in my last post have been checked and are all fine. If so, that's the end of my knowledge and I hand it over to others who know more.

If not, I'd be damned if I scrapped a car for the sake of a spread or corroded connector block or a cracked filter housing lid.

is there any way you can monitor fuel line pressure whilst driving it to see if it drops when it goes gaga
