the cars had a bit of a starting issue lately, just noticed that fiddling with the cam sensor plug made it start, with a noise,(no5 injector) so switched off, and back on again and it ran fine. still has this intermitant fault. is it likely to be the sensor at fault or bad wiring? is it common for the wiring to go bad here?

i have also noticed the rev counter kinda flickers does that point to cam sensor as well?
