Re: 1.9 dci

Hi,
l presume when you say 'tested injectors' they have been tested by diesel place or have you just disconnected one at a time to find the misfire.
Could possibly be an exhaust valve and need compression test to eliminate that.

Re: Where is my Camshaft sensor?

Hi,
no good stabbing in the dark.
You need to read fault codes.
If it were the cam sensor, it probably wouldn't start.
However, it's on you tube for a 1.6
see if yours is the same.
Good luck
Bob.

Re: Renault megane 1.9 DCI 2005 Fault code DF025 pre-heat unit

Hi, does the fault warning go out like in this original post? Have you checked the glow plugs are working (see how to on you tube). Have you got the same fault code as above and does the engine start when cold? You might be better off starting a new post as this is an old one with no resolution it s...

Re: Air conditioning not working

Hi, when you look at stuff on you tube, remember it doesn't have to be specifically megane, they are all basically the same. As for that wire, don't know what it is and will look on mine tomorrow, but is it the same colour as what's going to the a/c clutch? l have a Haynes manual but have found it p...

Re: Air conditioning not working

Hi, you should be able to test the clutch by disconnecting it and connect direct to battery, should hear a click at least. I think this is on you tube worth watching if you're not sure. When l test stuff direct like this, l usually use a bulb in line and if it lights up there's a circuit. Let us kno...

Re: Can’t get in

Hi, l had this, because it's rarely used, the emergency key bit needs a soaking with wd40, eventually mine worked. If it doesn't work try this, remove the engine under cover and clip battery charger to the thick starter wire (+) and other (-) to earth anywhere on engine or body. Once it starts charg...

Re: New MOT regs

Hi, well done on the pass. Don't know if yours has a DPF, but it's worse now if you've got one. With the expense and liability of the DPF,for those who don't do high mileage, l reckon many will be returning to petrol. My 1.9dci doesn't have one so will run it till something major goes, then will dec...

Re: White smoke from exhost

Hi,
look for coolant level dropping or bubbles in coolant tank.
If that seems normal, it's most likely injector problem. You need to do a leak off test to find which one.
When you do find it, please let us know.
Good luck
Bob.

Re: Air conditioning not working

Hi, if there's no pressure in the system, it won't work. It could be just a re-gas but beware it could turn out expensive depending on where and how it's leaking. My son lives in Australia and uses a/c all the time and no troubles it seems. It's a system that needs using regular and that doesn't hap...

Re: 1.9 dci

Hi, any electrical or sensor fault would give a code, also if no rail pressure, it won't start. The lumpy tick over could have been to do with the work you did, they say to allow the pcm time to adjust. It's the cutting out that matters, if starved of fuel l believe the dash warning knows that somet...

Re: 1.9 dci

Hi, I'm an old school bloke too, but if anything is lighting up then there should be a fault code stored. You do need a code reader nowadays to put you in the right direction. It's a long way round the barn to keep on guessing. If no fault code then it's fuel related like air in system or fuel filte...

Re: Steering arm has relative movement at its fixings

Hi,
check the gaiter because if it's gone hard it will keep coming off, mine did.
Plus, while the track rod end or inner tie rod is off, it's easy to do the gaiter.

Re: Steering arm has relative movement at its fixings

Hi,
sounds like you need a n/s rack gaiter, they tend to go hard and need to be flexible. The other must be the track rod end or inner track rod on the same side.
Jack it up and find where the play is.
Bob.

Re: Engine management light

Hi,
important to read fault codes, this should put you in the right direction.
You can spend money just guessing and trying stuff.
