Re: Injection Fault & STOP 1.5 DCI

Hi Steve, Regarding barking at trees, there can be two such trees. First, the injectors in some, if not all 1.5dci are piezoelectric, which means high voltage and no direct current. I can't remember which engine uses which system, but this is all in the factory manuals in the sticky thread. I would ...

Re: very very smokey 2.0 turbo (after oil change)

Millers 5w40 nanodrive CFS nt. The guys from Millers say it is suitable for road, just don't attempt long service intervals (longer than a year). It's ester based, cleans the engine, the nanotechnology reduces friction/wear/temperatures. For women choose Millers 5w30 EE nano - long life, suitable fo...

Re: Megane 1.5dci stalling intermittently

I can't find the codes 2096 or 1669 in the manual. For the existing codes please refer to this book: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/355lr8566hrzhbg/AAAcdqkgIbnyMgfYEcWKsytwa/MR366MEGANE1.pdf?dl=0 The generic code readers usually return codes in the format P####, which can be translated into the notation...

Re: Check injection

This literally means check the injection computer for stored fault codes. Injectors are only a part of the whole system.

Re: Banning internal combustion engines

Yea, Leaf's 11.5 seconds are not bad compared to... some other car. I think, its strength is commuting in start-stop traffic in summer. A couple of winters ago a South African owner of some sustainable energy company (it was still global warming at the time, now reversed) crashed his Leaf in our old...

Re: Banning internal combustion engines

Exactly my point! The advocates of the ban are the mayors who are all socialists, while the mayor of Madrid is actually a communist and the mayor of London is, how to say... Can we use opinions of somewhat less evil people? Here we go.. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-38170794

Re: Will not run when warm says check injectors

Good thinking. One of the listed codes "short circuit to the ground" probably was causing secondary electrical problems. Well done!

Re: 2008 Expression Estate rear door conundrum

Demister-wiper "cooperation" may be caused by a broken earth circuit, in theory... It can be in the loom or a separate wire. At this point my experience with the tailgate stops, never had problems with it.

Re: Battery Change

With a new battery the car is supposed to start straight away, with the first turn of the crankshaft. There might be another fault somewhere. Check the cover of the headlight access hatch on the front left wheel arch liner. If it's missing, then the PSU gets wet which affects all the electrics.

Re: Help with Exhaust fumes

Yours is a Megane, not Scenic. The aircon intake is in the bulkhead, which is isolated from the engine compartment. This, however, is not important, as there should be no fumes under the bonnet. You need to find where they are coming from - there are not too many things under the bonnet to examine.
