Re: help please...but do i want to know?

Loosing 3L of oil means you only had around 1.5L left. This is itself bad. If there is no external leak, logic dictates it must be internal. Based on the fact that you lost coolant also, I would bet on a head gasket, but, that is a guess. Remove one of the major air hoses from the intercooler and ch...

Re: Ignition Fault

It doesn't say 'STOP' in big red letters for a laugh. This warning means usually that something major is wrong. I would suggest you don't drive the car at all until you know why the message appears.

Re: Megane GT DCi whine

I agree with Alex. The whine is proportional to the road speed so far as I can tell. Service the transmission and see if it still sounds like straight cut gears. I have no idea if the GT has a magnetic drain plug, but if it has, check it for metal shavings. Hope there are none. Excellent video, by t...

Re: " Battery Low " Renault Megane 2007 Wont Crank Over

Have you followed the suggestions already posted?

Do you have the exact same symptoms, or something slightly different?

Re: Roof / doors lining coming off

Someone should take a bottle of HCl or H2SO4 or NaOH with a good molar strength and see what happens to the glue... I can't believe that something such as sodium hypochlorite/acetone, diluted to human sensitive levels would cause such damage... Unbelievable, though, of course, something has happened...

Re: Whining noise when the air-conditioning is engaged 2005

I wrote a detailed post about this, but the server decided to log me out.

Don't use the A/C until you have taken it to place with the essential kit to test it.

The engine oil and refrigerant oil are entirely separate. You cannot test the A/C system from home.

Re: help please!!!!

I'm going to take a guess and suggest a) EGR/pipes/various clogged, in which case, inspect/clean as required. b) Bad bearings on the turbo. Really, you need to inspect all of the induction pipework for significant amounts of oil, listen to the turbo carefully, and of course get any fault codes read....

Re: Check Injectors problem continued

Ahh now i get it, sorry I take things literally force of habit. 1) This is why I didn't echo Alex's post - I know pilots take their check lists very carefully (so I was surprised you didn't spot the discrepancy)! 2) Yes - I'm into aviation, but never progressed further than a PPL/IR - funding issue...
