Re: Renault Clio 2003 - Engines - Loss of power and Warning Light

Had similar problem the other day. Same kind of car behavior except the warning light. Car became so weak and acceleration was really slow. Max gear was 3rd and max speed was about 40-50kmph. On top of all, if I give tad more bit gas HUGE cloud of black smoke would appear out of the exhaust.

Once mechanic hooked him up to the computer he diagnosed EGR fault. Once he got to the EGR it got clogged up and my turbine stopped working. He cleaned the EGR valve and cleaned the pipes that connected the turbo and cleaned errors on the computer and my car works better than ever. Afterwards I had to go to the highway and keep the car going constantly on 4000 rpm in 4th gear for unclog pipes and turbine and get the EGR working properly again.
