Completely agree, turbo units share the same oil from the sump as the engine does, it is absolutely imperative that good quality oil is used, that it is changed at regular (more realistic) intervals than Renault originally quoted, and that after a long hard run, that the engine is given a few minutes idling to 'cool' the turbo off.

Every car has its problems, and although the honest john site is very useful, it can paint a real 'doom & gloom' picture of every car on the market. Think about it - how many owners will feel driven to enthuse about their car?

Plus, the difference with these types of forums (compared with ours), is that 'we' will see a problem through to conclusion, rather than just saying "there's a problem with this/that" and leave it there.

Have a good read of this forum, and make up your own mind whether to go ahead or not.

All the best,


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
