Hondo i know you dont know me but i have a technical question for you. I saw that you gave advice on an engine not so long ago, and i incur the same kind of problem with a laguna 2 eg power loss, engine management light on , pitched whistling while accelerating and was wondering if you could help. thanks
g-lo I'm here now but you've now gone.
You must be desperate asking me teckie questions
I'm certainly no teckie at all, but if I can help I will.
I dunno which post you're referring to, but the problem that I had on my Lag II 2.2 sounds somewhat different to yours. On mine, I just had the engine management light come on, with no whistling noise, or lack of power.
But after reading the stuff I'd seen both on here and elsewhere I got the car back to Renault under warranty ASAP
primarily because I didn't have to pay.
They replaced the
valve and various bits of associated plumbing, a week or so later I found the new
valve was leaking
from the flange, I took it back they they decided this time the seals had gone in the
This was also replaced under the warranty.
But A word of dire warning tho
does blow big time, the engine engine hits full revs & starts consuming the engine
in the sump until the Gawd damned engine
is all gone, you can't stop it with the key card, the only way its gonna stop is stalling it, hopefully this saves the engine hitting the big bang = scrap!!
If this is not what you are referring to, plz throw me up a link and I'll take another go.
