Re: espace bangs when pulling away
Almost certainly engine mounts. There are rubber blocks bonded to metal plates top and bottom and after a while the rubber separates from the plate. This allows the whole engine to lift. Very easy to see if someone else drives the car and you watch the sump from outside. The engine can lift enough for the sump to disappear from view.
Currently in James Findlay's garage:
1996 Renault Espace Helios, Late Phase II many parts from Phase III, 2L petrol 8 Valve,
