Re: Clio 2006 56 1.5 dci diesel questions

The injectors min 100 each plus coding to the engine egr easy to remove and clean but when ihad to do tbe head gasket I reground the valves due to the way the system works with the egr valve they had in places 10mm of carbon build up I have some pictures around next the turbo not cheap to replace evan when fitting it yourself and not if but wnen the oil seals let go if you do not stall the engine say good buy to it and look for another next known problem are the piston rings my own thoughts on this is again down to the way the egr works all that gunk going back into the cylinders gums up the rings
as to to injection pump add a little mineral 2st oil to ever tank and it will last longer apart from the above when running thet are great only thing I hate with renault you cant drop the sump the subframe is in the way most cars evan the wifes mgf 30minsto an hr and the sump is off
