Re: air in fuel

Have you carried out a fuel filter replacement recently? The new filter usually comes with new O-Rings to seal the filter bowl. Can't really see where else on the low pressure side of the fuel system air can be drawn in. Have you primed the low pressure side of the fuel system using the hand priming...

Re: chck unjection at 130km/h

No air bubbles in the fuel line when the car is sits at idle? I trust the car has had regular oil changes through out it life to date using fully synthetic oil? A little early in the cars life to suspect an injector since you can hope to get 200,000 miles out of a set of injectors with the modern fu...

Re: chck unjection at 130km/h

What year is the car? How many miles / KMS on the car? When was the last fuel and air filter change carried out? Although these modern cars are very electrical, they still rely on basic servicing to keep them healthy. I doubt the glowplug will be your issue, since this generally on gives the message...

Had the same issue regarding the water pump - could hear the pump running but no screen wash... The pumps wear out. replaced it and it was fine. Pump is located on the washer bottle RH wheel bay. Remove the liner, and the water bottle is right there in front of you. The pump is on the front of the b...

Re: Anyone know what this is

Thanks Alex, just the cable and plug now to work out :) Tyre pressure sensor pick up - dependant on model... I have a 2005 Scenic with these installed - the magical bit is in the wheel assembly itself - The sensors are mounted in the wheel area - it they go wrong I think the fix is to unplug them.....

Re: 1st gear on manual gearbox - potential issue?

Hello Serge, Welcome to the world of French Cars... I've only ever owned Renault since I LOVE them - mind you I love the French and everything French! It's really a great gear-box! I have a 1.9 Dci getting on for 150,000 miles / 241,400 KM. I think you might be looking at a clutch issue to be honest...

Re: Timing belt tracking across outside edge of cam pulley

Had a similar issue when I replaced my timing belt on my 1.9 Dci a couple of years back. It was down to the belt not being aligned correctly when it was installed. Basically the belt needs to be installed and tensioned with everything in alignment - if the belt is held over on the top two pullies ev...

Re: megane 2.0 dci egr valve

Forgot to mention - regular oil & filter changes help the health of the EGR valve a lot. I have my Scenic since birth. I started out on a 9000 mile oil and filter change, but due to changes in driving habits and location I have switched to a 6000 miles interval. Currently living in Malta so the ...

Re: megane 2.0 dci egr valve

If its working fine and you do regular long run don't touch! The life of the EGR is around 100,000 miles, then you'll start to get some fault codes and an amber engine light (boring). At this point the EGR will need to be replaced... No messing! The mileage varies, but it will fail at some point due...

Go for the EGR Valve not the turbo at this point.

Re: EGR

Nothing at all... The car would most likely run smoother.

You would have a yellow caution light on your dashboard for sure... MOT Failure

Emissions would be out... MOT Failure.

Hope this helps..?

Re: alloy wheel flat spot

I have a similar flat spot on one of my alloys after hitting a huge hole in the road at 130 KM/h several years ago. After having the wheel balanced with a lot of lead the wheel is fine - however the tire on this particular wheel wears at a slightly faster rate, whichever position the wheel is fitted...

Just out of curiosity...

What mileage and conditions has this vehicle been operated under?

What service schedule has the vehicle been maintained to?

Re: very bad mpg Scenic 1.9dci

Glad to be of some help... :cool: Not sure if you have a Haynes or Renault Manual but the air filter box is accessed by removing the rubber weather strip / bonnet seal. There is a panel that is removed by a couple of screws and some stud location spigots. Once accessed the air filter element can be ...
