Sorry, I meant the link at the bottom of that post. According to what you'll find there (in French), the answers to your questions are No and Not_applicable (section 11A). If one cylinder is not working, then they should have checked the wiring, compression and the injector itself. It is possible th...

Technically you are correct. This opens another question: why is it gone low? Pad wear, of course. My guess is that jonesy889 does not check the levels regularly and that the brake fluid was never changed since 2003. It is supposed to be changed every 2 years! Otherwise, it gets saturated with water...

Yea, mate... If you think that the brake fluid is low, then go round the corner very quickly... :banghead

Air filter replacement in Megane II 1.9dci is straightforward, I know from my experience, and according to Renault takes just 0.1h. The same operation for Scenic II 1.9dci takes 0.3h. I am not familiar with details, but it might be more fiddly.

Oil filter for 1.9DCI

I went to my local GSF to buy the oil filter. Their database pointed at LS309, which is different from the one recommended by Purflux. The danger is that it will fit, but its capacity is smaller. Took some time to locate the correct one. Please take a note of the correct filter to save time. GSF No:...

The brakes are supposed to look like in this paper: https://www.flirthermography.com/media/2004-046%20Royo%20FINAL.pdf The rotors will be a bit shinier if the GreenStuff pads are used. There should be no corrosion, abnormal colours or deep grooves on the working surface. This paper also contains som...

Very interesting reading, indeed! Some time ago I looked at MSDS of several brands and found that the latest products generally have a lower percentage of calcium containing chemicals. The above quote explains it! It also seems that on average the 0w... oils contain less calcium than 5w... oils. Wel...

I agree with IainMW. You need an ACEA A3, (0-5)w(30-40) oil. All 0w... oils are proper synthetics (my choice) and most 5w... oils are "fake" synthetics, i.e. hydrocracked mineral oils. Fake synthetics are adequate for regular applications, but I prefer to spend extra £15 a year for a sort of a...

As I understand, the MAF sensor in a turbo DCI engine is mostly used in control and adaptive calibration of EGR, VGT turbocharger control and in the patented method of lag reduction. I, probably, missed a few items in this list, such as injection timing and the multiple injection mode... If it is di...
