Re: Renault Espace - 2.2dTi Non-Start*FIXED*

Just a quick note about air in the fuel lines, I had a similar problem a yaer or so ago the car would start fine if it had been running recently otherwise it would start then cut out and take a lot of cranking to get going. It turned out to be nothing more then one of the short bleed pipes that link the injectors to the return line cracked ! quick and inexpensive to fix but garages tend to come up with horror stories !
Hope this helps someone.
Currently in gordonpringle's garage:
