Hi All

The flex plate on my GEMS '96 P38 4.6 HSE shattered.
Had it replaced with one laser cut from a engineering shop out of 6mm spring steel (could not find a replacement part)
So hopefully that wont happen again...
Also had the gearbox oil pump fixed and the torque converter re-conned as they all got damaged.

Anyway, everything is back together but now she wont start?
Motor turns over, she makes a "bark" like she's going to start and then stops.

I'm suspecting the CPS but this shows fine on diagnostics?
Could the thicker than normal flex plate have an effect on the CPS?

Struggling to find a CPS other than at the stealers and they want a pirate chest full of gold for one....
As soon as I find one I will replace it but was hoping for some wisdom from the wizards on here :mrgreen:

Thanks!

Are you able to hook it up to anything to read codes?
Does the 'check engine' light come on with the ignition on?
Do you have a scope that you can hook up to the crank sensor to look at the output?
Have you checked to make sure you have fuel pressure?
Have you checked that you're getting spark?

No error codes
Check engine light stays on now, replaced the sensor.

She started fine before the gearbox removal

So after replacing the sensor with a second hand one she turns over and sounds like she is going to start but doesn't.
The check engine light stays on and when you hook the battery up the doors do not lock any longer?
Does that mean that ecu etc lost its coding?

When the flex plate went, did it damage any of the teeth on the reluctor ring that the crank position sensor gets it's position from? There should be one tooth missing at a specific point on the ring and that is used for setting the ignition timing. If other teeth have been damaged that may be seen as the missing tooth and cause the timing to be way out.

If you've had the battery disconnected you will need to resync the fobs to the car again. If you are locking with the key and the central locking isn't working, then you have a problem with the microswitches in the door latch.
