Re: Renault Laguna II - Phase 1 - Engines - Turbo Diesel Engine Problems
One day I went into a Renault dealer to fix a wishbone on a wheel that had popped off in a car wash. They did a 25 point check on the car [it was regularly service by them]. I did not ask them to do this either! They found the rear bushes needed replacing [ they didn't straight away]. The intercooler was damaged [ which caused pulling on the engine and they did it with a spanner wrongly fixing a rubber bush!]. Glow plugs had all failed and could not be removed as they has seized! [ spent months to years getting them out gently with WD40 so the engine wasn't wrecked!] They also then said the
needed replacing as it was 'whistling'! [It was cleaned by my mechanic and it is still going strong. He says if it fails you will feel a loss of power and smoke before anything else.
