Re: Hello and buying a Grand Scenic 1.6 dci 2011 advice please.
1.6 is a modernised & downsized 2.0 M9R Nissan/Renault engine. Some clever tricks were used, such as cold
or restricted cooling fluid circulation to ensure quicker heating up.
Two problems - it's a diesel
and mediocre high-end performance (above 3.6 krpm - because it's a diesel).
Any message displayed in orange or - even worse - red is a bad sign, esp. on the lines of "check injection/exhaust".
Timing chain tension should be checked at around 125000 miles, so not much time left.
Currently in funkoval's garage:
