Hi Everyone

A 1998 Laguna DTi was my first Diesel, I found it very prone to Water collection in the Fuel Filter. I'm affraid this is a 5000 mile service requirement (as surgested by Haynes Manual and not 10,000 by Renault) ., It's the one thing any Diesel hates espiecially the Injection system.

Symtoms : Injection & SERV lights on and loss of power, lights will go off when you take your foot off the accelerater and come back on when you put your foot back on.

Cure : Drain any Water from the Fuel Filter

I hope this helps
