Re: Renault Clio 1.1 1.2 Dynamique

Bump - Sorry.

They have done the report, and found the below;

"It has been determined that the incident occurred due to displaced engine oil coming into contact with the exhaust. "

They are saying that there were holes in the engine block, and that examination of the cylinder head, inlet and exhaust valves identified the exhaust valves on No.3 cylinder are virtually free from carbon deposits when compared to the other cylinders.

This is consistent with water entering the combustion cylinder and cleaning the carbon deposits from the valve heads whilst under compression.

I've never driven through water at speed, and I've never driven in deep water either.

I was going through water on say start of January, where it stopped as I was about 10m clear of the water. About 20s later, my engine turned on again. Incident happened 26/03.

Any opinions please?
