I have an AGU engine, and would like to see if the temp sensor is sending good temp reading to the ECU or not.

Is it on block 3 ??

Can anyone tell me how I can do it ???

Thanks[;)]

Yes it's block 003. Is this the new green top one that you're checking or the other one? What's the latest news?

Usually it is only one side that goes so you can compare the datablock in the cluster against the one in the ECU they should be the same (unless the temp is changing i.e. engine running / fan running)

pope, unbielevable but with new sensor car is running lean and put back old sensor and running hard agian and it idle seems to read good (-/+100 Deg) so there were it should be

Sounds like the cause may be elsewhere perhaps???

Suggest that you run with the green top sensor then, as that one is more reliable and should give you a good base to work with. Even if you're getting a good A/F ratio with the old sensor now, I'd still be tempted to stick with the green and look for other causes for the mixture variation. If the old ones dies, you'll have to switch to the green anyway.

Are you running with with everything else the same as before except for the fuel?

pope

mine is a blue sensor, its replaced with a lighter blue one not a green top, earlier engines like mine (1999) used this blue sensor which has a square plug

I had blue or black to begin with, can't remember which, and it started giving intermittent errors. Ordered a new one. Got a green one but I think it had the wrong connector. Went to my local dealer and managed to get a green one with the right connector after doing a look-up on the system. At least I think that's how it went. Bit difficult to remember now. Anyway, I've now got a green one in my AGU engine and have not had a problem since then.

Year 2000. I'll go and see if I can find the old sensor to find out what I have in there. Don't want to disturb the existing one. Will let you know.

In the beginning my car had a black sensor, p/n 078 919 501C, round connector.

I ordered a new one from the UK and got a green one 059 919 501A with a square connector.

Went to my local dealer and did a look-up on their system for the black sensor. Against my original number they had a listing saying that the part had been replaced by a newer part. Managed to get that newer sensor from them and it came with the round connector. The new sensor in my car now is light green, the square top sensor that came from the UK is dark green.

Going back to your original question, I'd suggest monitoring the car from cold and take it for a 20-30 minute drive logging block 003 the whole time. Afterwards review the log and see if the temperature values being recorded are stable or are fluctuating wildly. In addition, monitor your A/F ratio at the same time so you can see if that is behaving or not.

Ok just seen on Vortex that you also have the 059 919 501 sensor. No idea why yours is light blue and mine is dark green. Suggest you stay with that one and do some logs.

Hi mate, just done one on mine (1999 AGU 1.8T)

This is what you should get. This was starting from cold (10C) and running at idle till warm, no acclerator pedal action!!

I also put the intake temp on there, but TBH it's a bit meaningless really...esp at idle, worth confirming the Inlet temp sensor works on a high speed run etc...

I logged group 3, the last two values.

Have you also tried logging your MAF (group 2)

You should get a nice smooth curve on full throttle from low revs like this...

You will flow a lot more air than me with your IHI setup!! But if it's jagged it higlights a problem with the MAF.

Also you may want to speak to Wilko about his investigations with MAfs in an IHI setup.

Hope this helps

Hi mate, here you go...

Engine performance wise:

Miltek cat-back

Revo SPS1 chip (AGU non-dbw latest code version)

New paper filter element.

Hyperboost dump-valve

Sitting in the shed items...

Miltek sports CAT

K03Sport

N75-J

K&N pannel filter (had this fitted but removed it)

after a run the car was showing between 97 - 103 deg celcius and an intake temp of 45 Deg, that according to jabba is that were it should be

The highest I MAF air flows I got till now was 166g/s

Malky, would be interested to see what that MAF flow looks like after you fit the cat. Here's a graph of some logs I did about 2 weeks ago. I've got the full Milltek, an AMD chip, an AMD DV (Turbo Dynamics), Forge SMIC and the Forge/Samco TIH. Readings at 30 deg C ambient temp. Max readings very similar to yours (K03 maxed out at about 15-16 psi, injector timing maxed out) but quicker spool which I assume is the DP/cat and the TIH.

Malta, I think you need to plot the temp data on a graph to see if it is fluctuating wildly rather than just looking at values at one point. The most common fault seems to be intermittent values. Send me the log files if you want me to plot the stuff for you later.
