    well my shitty runabout Civic esi failed its MOT on emissions, i do admit was running a bit rich but never bothered me cos its a work horse.


    anyways done a CEL code check, it showed:


    6 ECT Sensor (Engine Coolant Temperature) defective circuit or unplugged / defective sensor


    and


    43 Fuel Supply System defective or malfunctioning fuel supply system


    any ideas what will cure the 43 - the defective fuel system? or has anyone else had this code, if so, what did you do to sort it ?


    cheers

    got both ordered up now. way i see it is if the temp sensor is fooked then its gonna run rich as it'll always think its cold an won't be able to correct itself if the lambda sensor is buggered cos it won't be getting a correct reading.


    am i right in sayin tht or talkin shite haha ?
