    Welcome. Is it turning over and just not firing? Did any of the codes get cleared off and have you rechecked that no others have appeared?

    00514 cam shaft circuit
    00522 tempsenos circuit
    both have been checks to the ecu pins and the loom is good also both sonsors have been changed to rule them out so all that's left is the
    ecu
