If it's a 12 valve then it's definately 3 valves per cylinder.

From my info,the 2.2 12 valve engine was only ever used in the Safrane.There are a few different models that used the 2.2 8 valve,and a 21 that used a 2.0 12 valve but no 2.2 12 valve.

Yours could be one of three engines...

2.2 8 valve which had a code J7T 4766 or J7T Z766 which produced 137hp and was used from 1996-98

2.2 8 valve which had a code J7T 762 which produced 107hp and was used from 1992-2001

2.2 12 valve which had a code J7T 760 or J7T 761 which produced 137hp and was used from 1992-96

It certaintly looks like the 12 valve was only used for a short time,and was then replaced by an equally powerfull 8 valve for some reason.I don't recall any other manufacturer using this engine,so I guess it was designed and built solely by Renault.

Hope that helps.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
