And I thought playing the trumpet or tuba alone was difficult…this takes being Dutch (and being able to do everything on a fiets/bicycle) to a new level! 

A fantastic BBC programme about Bicycle, dont miss it on I-Player Mr Rob Penn Chapeau to you.

Problem solved with the Fiat Multipla

Fiat JTD crank/ RPM sensor removal and replacement

Diagnosis:
A common fault with JTD engines that have done over 50000 miles is intermittent cutting out. This normally occurs once then engine has warmed up, and the engine will the simply cut out. Often, it will not restart again until it has been left for a while to cool down a bit. However it will turn over fine. Once the engine has restarted, it will then run fine again for a while, until again it cuts out. This is a common fault, and classic symptoms of a faulty crank shaft sensor or RPM sensor as it is sometimes known.
A new crank/RPM sensor will set you back about £30-40 from Fiat, or around £20 from somewhere like Shop4parts.co.uk

  • Jack front of car up and support on axel stands, or use ramps. Don’t work under a car just supported by a jack! If it fails, it WILL hurt!
  • Undo the 5 bolts that secure the undo tray to the car. 3 torx bolts at the front, 2 x 10mm bolts at the rear. Remove the under tray from the car.
  • Crawl under the car and look up at the rear side of the engine.. Just the right of the exhaust, you will see a large red cable clipped into a plastic bracket. There is also a smaller black cable. This is the lead for the RMP/crank sensor.
