Quick Q - S1 Wgnc34 Cas


Recommended Posts

Car wont run (properly), sometimes starts, but then stops & wont restart

Engine just turns over. Consult says error 11 by memory, faulty camshaft angle sensor

So, I need to replace the CAS

Car is 1997 S1 Stagea, RB25det (so a series 2 R33 engine)....

Need to get a replacement tomorrow (Monday) but Im not home, and forget if its a plastic cover CAS or the metal version.

Can someone check their 1997 Stagea and tell me if its the plastic CAS, asap?

Thanks very much.

Nearly all S1 Stageas had the R33 S2 motor with metal Mitsubishi CAS. The very last of the series though had the Plastic covered Hitachi CAS. Maybe you can remember seeing the Mitsubishi logo on it?

I'm v.confused now, I'm hearing I need plastic version, but also reading I need metal version.

I don't remember because I just didn't take notice!

It's a Feb 1997 build, with Tomei cams if that makes a difference.

Which cas do I purchase? Ta.

Got a metal one from Jap Import Spares for $120. Will fit tomorrow when I'm home & let you know what happens!

Cheers for the advice re build dates & plastic/metal models.

Replacement didn't work. Mucked around with that & original, no go.

Found a shorting wire between ecu & piggyback, think it was the cas trigger wire!

Was exposed slightly in two areas (from when I've shut close the plastic kick panel previously), & touching each other.

Bit of tape to fix the 2 exposed wire areas, bingo: no more consult code 11 cas error, car runs with original cas installed now.

Used all my spare coins to buy the replacement tho! Life of a student pensioner I guess ;)

New g/f was very understanding & helpful tho - she's a keeper!!!
