This Morning TDC fails

Hi All:

This morning my car stops after 2-3 minutes running and it does not start again. Thanks God, I was inside my state and I was able to park it.

I called my local Renault dealer and asked me for 65 for the TDC . I did not asked to bring the car because I can not move it, and normally they give you a next week appointment. I need my car to go to work.

So plan B:

1. Go to my local car parts shop (Auto Care motor Parts). Got TDC sensor, Ratch, Extension bar and 10mm drive. All was 115

Now to do:

1.Wait until it stop rainning and wind here in Dublin. Mission imposible.

2. Fix the TDC . .Disconnect batt., take out air filter, take out old TCD, check it, put new TDC , cross fingers and start car.

I hope do not have to bring my car to Renault to clear codes.

I will keep you posted and photos.
