Hello cappa,welcome to the forum.

Stop solenoids are no longer needed or fitted to common rail diesel engines like your Dci.I suspect that the TDC Sensor is faulty,and if you do a search for it you will find a wealth of information regarding faults of this type.The info may not be RX4 specific,but the sensors are a weak point on the whole Renault range,especially on the Dci engine.

Good luck and let us know how you get on.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
