Re: Please can anyone advise me on a Renault Megane problem?

Ideally the fuel sender unit should be replaced as it can be difficult to clean and if their current diagnosis is correct then that would seem to be the problem. A Renault dealer should be able to supply such a unit within 24 to 48 hours so it looks like they are on the look out for a secind hand unit.

Air in the fuel lines can be for many reasons but the most common is leaking fuel pipe joints, fuel filter or sticking non-return valves.

If it were my car I would insist the contents of the fuel filter be checked for signs of metal particles using a magnet.
