Does anybody know if this is right?
VEL SATISfied I don’t know how long it takes to actually clean or inspect the
valve, but I do know that a Renault dealer sealed mine in with gasket sealant because of continual leakages after 16K miles which now leaves me somewhat disbelieving that there still maybe an underlying and not solved problem, the reason I have these doubts is because the main Renault man on here, says gasket sealants are not required because the genuine Renault
valve gasket is of a crushable steel type that requires no sealant, sorry I’m droning on a bit, the point is I complained about the need to step outside Renaults procedure of not using any, gasket sealant and was told.
“Bring the car back in we will remove the EGR valve and replace the gasket without any sealants this will take no longer than 15 minutes”
While you wait

Another esteemed member on the forum has since advised me via PM, that the only place this engine
can be coming from is the
was replaced after it displayed these signs of leaking
S’funny after the
was replaced the
valve still leaked engine
, of which I am reliably told can only becoming from errm, JC the
Renault collected the car from work kept it a couple of day, on this occasion, a none required gasket sealant had been used.
