Laguna I - Need help locating Glow Plug relay/timer
Hiya guys, im now an owner of my first Renault and need a bit of advise.
I bought a 1999 Laguna RN DTi off an old fella last week for £100. He had owned the car from new and he has kept the body work in fantastic condition and its only done 47k on the clock so I could not let it walk away.
Basicly the thermostat housing started a leak when he went to do his shopping and did not notice the engine was overheating until the headgasket blew.
So after I bought the car iv rebuilt the head with all new parts and replaced the thermostat housing.
The car is running as good as new now apart from im having a problem with cold starts.
The glow plug timer is only allowing less than a second of power applied to the plugs when the ignition is energised, and in my opinion it should be atleast 5 seconds if not more.
Does anyone know if this is a common fault or fault part, or can the timing be tweaked?
Also I would like to know were I can find the relay that operates the glow plugs.
Currently in dannyworsley's garage:
