    Iirc it monitors fuel flow in relation to output from the injection pump and calibrates it.

    They cost about £300 + new ......

    The wire can wear through on the front of the timing cover so I'd check that first.

    Thats the injector yes, the sensor is built into it I think. I've heard that a common failure is the wire being damaged rather than the sensor itself, although this wasn't the cause for me it's worth a look.

    ok cool, will have a look at the wire, but i may be thinking the sensor as its not been changed before according to the massive service file iv got and the car has just hit the 208k miles range, so it may well be over due,
