Glad to be here

I have been looking around as a guest in the last month or so. I have learned a lot from this site; repaired ambient temperature sensor, cleaned disa valve, and just today replaced the intake cam position sensor which was the cause of all my engine troubles once it got up to operating temperature. The car would exhibit no power, sometime shut off immediately once it was started, crank excessively before it would start, stall sometimes when idling. Thanks to many threads and reading what others had posted, I confidently concluded that it was in fact the cps. If you are the least bit mechanically inclined, it is a very easy fix. The hardest part was disconnecting the connector, but that is fairly simple if you remove the air box assembly, and the filter can remain in the box. Also, there is no need to remove the oil filter housing assembly cap. There is plenty of room to get a L-shaped 5 mm allen wrench in there. I hope this helps someone.
