Re: Scenic 1.5dci

The 1.5 Dci engines are notorious for sticking piston rings and failing turbos.

Make sure you insist on watching the exhaust tail pipe for signs of blue smoke during both a cold and warm start-up. Also give it a good thrashing with someone folowing you - get them to look for signs of blue or black smoke.
