Renault Scenic - Engines - Wet plug
I have a 2001 RX4 2.0 petrol. Started the car this morning and all fine, stopped at shop and re-started and it seemed to have dropped a cylinder. Went onto the motorway and picked up speed and it went fine and seemed to clear itself. Went back to the car about 2 hours later and it was missing again. Whipped the plugs out when i got home and found one to be soaking with water. Put a screwdriver down (carefully) and it had vapour on it. Dried the plug and all's been fine. Water level is not moving, engine temps fine, heater is blowing constant hot air so the head gasket would seem to be ok. Has anyone else experienced this with these cars? Read somewhere that there is a problem with the rubber seal at the scuttle panel that lets water in but surely it wouldn't get into the bore! Any advice would be appreciated.
