From what I have read there also seems to be a higher incident of crank bearing failure on the 15dci? than other Renault engines? and oil consumption can also be an issue with some engines?

and not being an all out mechanic , i'm guessing crank bearing failure is bad ??
i know how engines work, i know when dont look right,sound right or feel right. and thats about it

thanks very much for the quick reply
this seems like a good place to be a member
