Found further leak which turns out to be a crack in the engine block. Tried to fix it, in the dealer's for 2 months but they finally gave up.
Traded it in today, dealer sold me a used Espace at cost plus large cash contribution from Renault customer service.
I'm glad I've seen the back of that one.
Great car, but I had a lemon.
Espace drives well, 3.0Dci Initiale. pick it up on Wednesday.
Let's hope lightning does'nt stike twice.
Really sorry to hear of all your problems, Hopefully the new car will prove to be more reliable.
