lambda is basically an oxygen sensor... when i had the oebd kit on mine last night we went through all the options on it and lambda came up... its flicks between rich and lean as it tells the ecu more fuel, less fuel...

That's brilliant mate thankyou !! Could the lambda be a part of the problem ??

Just means the mixture can't be managed correctly because the ECU is trying to change the amount of air and fuel and the results aren't correct.

Thanks alot dan ! Could this turn out to be an expensive fix ? Will it do any harm to the engine ??
