renault trafic sl27 dci100
I have a van that nobody can mend !!!!!
the problem is when you start it from cold it takes about 10 minutes before you can drive off. This is usually when the temp gauge is at half way.
I have taken it for a diagnostic check at a local garage and it came up with a throttle sensor fault.
I took the van to a main Renault dealer who at a cost of £120.00 said it wasn't showing any faults on the diagnostic check but they were sure it was a fault between the throttl sensor and the injection computer and would need the van for 2 more hours to pin point the fault ( another £150.00)
Not sure what to do i bought a new throttle sensor from a renault dealer and the van worked perfectly for 2 days. Unfortunately it went back to normal.
I got in touch with the main dealer mechanic to get a full price on the repair .He said they would be looking for a wire fault but on renault vans you cant repair wires you have to fit a new loom !!!!
The cost was going to be from £500.00 upto £1800.00!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
After I picked myself up off the floor I thought it best to try a forum like this before I drive the van into a deep lake.
So here's hoping anyone can help
