Thanks for your help mate, what sort of dollars should i set aside to fix this, can i use second hand crank angle sensor or should i buy a new one? can i do it myself or should i get a mechanic to do it?

Brand new would be the best to use...PM Darkstar on this forum sells CAS kits brand new...If you have mechanical knowledge it's not that hard to install or just get your local mechanic...Goodluck

definatly 100% sounds like a vacume leak. happpens to me all the time with one dodgy bit of hose i got. i did replace them all but out crusing that one split so i put the old one back on and never got round to getting a new bit of hose. anyway comes off every now and again so i just put it back on and sweet as. it's the one that goes from the manifold to charcoal canister.
