Customer Question
Hi. I am working on...
Hi. I am working on a 2007 skoda Octavia. 1.9 diesel. The original engine let go due to oil pump failure. I have removed this engine from the car and got an engine from a local scrapyard from a 2008 estate Octavia. Everything seems the same apart from the crankshaft sensor. It's behind the flywheel on the original engine but a few inches inside the edge of the block on the "new engine". Will this work if I wire it up to the loom. Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks
