Hi Folks

Only had my RCZ back 4 days from having new timing chain, guides, tensioner etc,
was running sweet till started her up to come home from work, sitting in traffic when Engine (which was still cold) started juddering/shaking/spluttering, then cut out engine management light came on saying engine repair needed, restarted and
when the car was warmed up seemed to be OK still a slight juddering at standstill but does not cut out, error code P1337 / P1336 / P1340, had this before but thought it was because of the dreaded rattling chain
any ideas
only just forked out 550 pound for the timing chain issues, so hope its nothing to expensive :thumbdown:

Thanks in advance

Vince

Hi, what a downer!! Hope you get it sorted quickly and cheaply. Your chain and associated Gubbins will be under warranty so if the problem stems from that then your dealer should sort it quickly.
Sounds to me like a coil problem which is apparently a common fault on these engines and should be sorted quite easily.

Good luck and keep the faith! :eusa-think:

Yea that's the igniton coils. Just replaced all four on mine even if only 2 was bad.
Then do a little praying it takes years before next error :)

Hi Lanko

Just in case you missed It?... this threat is over 3 years old, so don't be too downbeat if you don't get a response.
