Hi All!
I have a 'non starting' LY7. Running one day, not the next. I have a running LY7 engine spare, so going thru some 'elimination' - looking to swap the Crank angle sensor - but where is it? After that, the cam angle sensors - perhaps :)
Thankyou in advance - I appreciate your experienced input!

It’s in a really schitty spot, drivers side, low down. Super hard to get to.

Thankyou Fu!
You seem well versed in these engines. Would you have an opinion if I am barking up the wrong tree?
Only sign of impending drama was over a few months, when engine started it would not rev for perhaps 30 sec. Then all good. On the occassion that it 'failed', it started, low rev, then died. Further attempts to start, at best resulted in a half hearted attempt to run at best, (or no attempt to run) whilst auto start turned it over, then nada. Fuel is not the issue. My local mechanic suggested changing all plugs and coils ... I have two Adventras and both playing up :( Any pointers much appreciated!
Cheers
John
