    Hi,

    I just. Had a timing belt kit fitted, the car came back, was difficult to start when warm, impossible to start cold the following day. It would fire as normal, but cut out after 2-3 seconds. Fault code was 012296 cam pos sensor signal out of range.

    I managed to get the car running by unplugging the cam sensor. I replaced the cam sensor with a beru item from ecp. Car now starts but has long cranking time and not a very clear fire up when warm

    Fault code now is 000833 cam position sensor implausible signal

    Any suggestions welcome please

    Yes, it is pretty much a certainty that they have set the the cam timing incorrectly, they probably did not use the correct locking pins and this can allow the exhaust cam to move.

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    look for tell tale tippex marks if you pop off the top cover, bit of a giveaway that they didn't use the pins ! crank may have been off as well when they fitted the belt.

    Sorry I should have mentioned, it is a 2009 6L tdi with I think a bms Engine. With the cam pulley pinned, the notch on the harmonic damper lines up with the pointer on the lower timing cover, to me it appears to be right. IF i need to reset the timing from scratch how would I go about this, or is there a torsion value I could check?
    I Appreciate your answers cheers

    You MUST set these with a crank locking plate and a cam locking pin, the adjustment is very fine.

    Finally put this one to bed, used the locking tools, it was about 1/2 of a tooth out at the crank. Initially, still had poor starting and was still throwing up the implausible signal fault code. I decided to refit the original Abe cam pos sensor, which thankfully did the trick.
