Re: TDC Sensor Replacement (with pictures!)

New to this forum, so please have patience with me?... I have a 1999 S-reg Megane RT 1.6L automatic 5-door hatchback. It has been an extremely reliable car up until a couple months ago when it started exhibiting starting issues as described here. But reading through this entire thread, it has become obvious to me that:

(1) Renault places these TDC 's all over the engine - no 2 models seem to be the same!

(2) I can't find mine to save my life!

Anyone out there have any clue as to where my TDC might be lurking? A photo would be most helpful. But even a general description....

Re: TDC Sensor Replacement (with pictures!)

Hey all want to add my 10pence worth.

My partner has a 2002 megane sport 1.6 and displayed all the symptoms described here.

She tried to start it last night but would not fire up. Engine turns nicely but it was as though no fuel was getting through. She could turn it 4 times or 10 times and nothing. She once just left it for a day and it started but was quickly back to square one. Very intermittent!

Anyway i did as suggested and cleaned the TDC it was filthy with tiny metal filings. Cleaned it with white spirits and put it back in. Turned the key and started perfectly!

It was a little awkward to get to, air filter had to be removed to get to it. about 40 mins in total.

Thanks to OP.

AVCC, it certainly makes you see red when you now know how simple the problem is to fix.
Spoke to a Renault technician down here and he says, sometimes even just unplugging the sensor can fix the problem as the early ones had very poor connections and got water ingress at some parking angles.
Yes, there is one or 2 places here that actually look outside the box with respect to repairs.

Re: TDC Sensor Replacement (with pictures!)

I've a 2004 Scenic 2 1.6. When starting from cold, starts ok, then revs drop if you don't keep accelerator pushed and stalls. OK when up to temperature. Would this also be a TDC sensor fault? If so, is the sensor in a similar place to photos of Scenic 1? Thanks.
