    Hi
    i was wondering if anyone on here has come across this
    its now happened to a mk4 golf and a sharan
    it seems that the miss is only ever cylinder 1 and after you have pulled the cam cover off the engine wiggled injector loom on number 1 cylinder the engine then runs on 4 again
    has anyone on here had a similar problem
    both engines have done between 110k - 130k
    i was wondering if it could be the loom in the head that connects to the injectors
    it also seems that that end of the loom has the most movement and maybe this is causing a broken wire or the terminals on the plug on the injector getting weak because of movement over time
    any other suggestions welcome
    thanks Paul

    Common fault this on the PD engines get a new injector loom from the stealers About £30 and it will be fine. What happens is the oil causes poor conections and the wiring goes hard / brittle.

    Definately its always that end of the loom that goes ,
    when you do it you will notice that end is unsupported compared to the rest i think thats the problem
