The noid light confirms that the injectors are actually being signaled to open. Measuring resistance only determines shorts or opens in circuits.Alex11jg wrote: ↑Fri Feb 19, 2021 11:38 amHi thanks for a reply. Would an ohm reader all reading at 15 ohm not be as sufficient? Could it still be faulty?mmc757 wrote: ↑Thu Feb 18, 2021 3:26 pm A noid light is a simple and inexpensive way to confirm fuel injectors are getting a signal.

Thanks again to all of you taking time to give some advice. She’s booked in next Tuesday if I can’t get anything out of her the weekend. I’ll be sure to let you know when I find out

Hi, on my mechanics 1st glance he thinks gasket, he’s going to do a compression test today. Be gutted if it isDOH wrote: ↑Fri Feb 19, 2021 12:44 pm Alex , You mentioned earlier that you had driven through water . In view of the fact you have sparks at the plugs and fuel at the injectors .
Then the next thing to check is do you have compression?
I am beginning to wonder if the cam belt has broken or stripped a tooth. Any ideas when it was last changed?
It may have also gone hydraulic if the water was deep enough damaging the rods and pistons?
Are you certain you last filled up with petrol and not diesel?
You could either borrow a compression tester , you will need the long reach thread adaptor or a long reach rubber cone type of push on and hold there adaptor for whichever tester you can use.
You could also undo approx 4x 10mm socket bolts and pull the front cover back slightly to see if both cams move when someone cranks it over for you.
If thats the case you could buy a replacement engine from Ian Griffiths his details are on this site "Puma Bits"
