    If an auto electrician can't sort out a P38 he should resign his job and become a dustman. :D:D

    Hi Merlyn & Wooly , come on lads give us a clue , 99% of auto electricians don't know boiled ham from west ham as far as the p38 goes , the p38 is a minefield as far as the electrics go , when they were first designed and built in the P38 BUILDING , that's where it gets its name from by the way , well it was 30 yrs ahead of itself !!!! BUT & a big BUT . there is plenty of good reliable members on here who through their own trials and tests of working on their own p38 , will give you help and advice to get it sorted , im no expert or electrician but I know a man who does ???? that's how it goes ,, so have some faith and ask !!!!!!! you may well be surprised, so lets get on with it .. regards Mozz

    what fault codes are you getting on the nanocom. if its trying to start on easy start its nearly there. any change if you disconnect the MAF ?

    when you say engine has been reconditioned, has it been running since the engine recon ? who did it, what was done ? was the engine out ?
