Technical Troubleshooting & Servicing / X20XEV rodent damage
« Last post by wim_vg on May 22, 2022, 20:31:05 PM »
Hi all,

My X20XEV has been standing outside for a while due to moving house. Until it was parked it was driving just fine. When I wanted to start it again, it would not do it and called the engine check light.

Upon opening the lid I could see that a rodent got to some of the cabling. One spark plug lead was bitten through and the insulation on the crankshaft sensor was eaten away at several locations  >:(

Reading the error code, it did give a 19 so changed the crankshaft sensor and the spark plug lead.
After that, the engine still would not start and also threw even more error codes... 71, and 73. I thought maybe dodgy crankshaft sensor, so changed it to another one, but to no avail... it also additionally threw a camshaft sensor failure.

It kind of feels the whole system got buggered... though wondering if it is another short somewhere caused by that damn rodent. Does anybody have any clue where to start looking?

That must have been one hell of a crash to bend the rear wheel out of alignment like that. The van driver must have been going at 60-70mph or even faster.

Hi, doe's anyone know the E-Mail address for ABS-ZERO.Com. I understand the guy's name is Ian and he can reprogram Calibra trip computers as they have to be programmed to a particular engine and model, or has anybody got any ideas.
Many thanks

Technical Troubleshooting & Servicing / MAF to Throttle body air trunking for V6
« Last post by cphill on February 25, 2022, 13:42:48 PM »
I have a 1993 Cavalier V6 and the air trunking between the MAF sensor and throttle body has developed a split. I've tried all the usual online parts places but all of them report that the part (GM part no. 90411203) is no longer available.
I'm pretty sure that the same trunking will be used on early Calibra V6s - the engine installation with the inlet manifold covering the rear 3 cylinders and a plastic cover over the front 3.
Does anyone know where I can get this trunking - or maybe has a new or used one lying around that they could sell me?
Although I have a jpg picture of the item the file size is too large to be attached unfortunately.
Calibra Chat / Gear Stick Gaiter and Hand Brake Boot
« Last post by Janus23 on February 25, 2022, 01:25:03 AM »

For anyone looking to replace their tired Gear Stick Gaiter and Hand Brake Boot with better Grain Corrected Leather with Plain or Contrast Stitching I can recommend  £19.99 for the pair including postage. Can be bought seperately.
Seller On Ebay: the-tuning-shop-team  based in Redruth, Cornwall.

Heads up they produce 2 handbrake gaiters for the Calibra initially sent option B, which I soon discovered wasn'nt going to fit over grip on lever. Option A replacement sent and received within 48 hrs of contacting the company.

Gear Stick Gaiter fitted over the top of the gear stick securing with plastic pull tie. Compared with what was left of the 25year old originals huge improvement.

Great Customer Service

Calibra Chat / C20ne head gasket
« Last post by neilwesleyporter on February 19, 2022, 12:28:57 PM »
Hi everyone, does anyone know if somewhere I can get a genuine head gasket set for a c20ne engine
Hi, does the engine check light flash, is would indicate a immobiliser fault. The hand book says "turn key to position O wait 2 seconds then try to start. Failing that you could check the Calibraclub net, go to search, put in immobiliser and there is 11 posts on problems. Page 7 and 8 maybe of help and they mention fuse 11 also the immobiliser unit which they say holds 2 relays soldered to the printed circuit board. They say the unit is behind the passenger foot well.
Hope it helps
