Re: New Renault owners
as per Renoir..the only time I got that on my 2011 the engine failure hazard was a dpf prob(associated with a remap I got..which shouldnt affect you)
Get it to the dealer/seller. Get them to force a regeneration(if thats what the proclem is).Mine..the engine ran at 3000 rpm for about 5 min then drpped to 2500 rpm for the regen.. for a further 5 min..you wouldnt believe the clouds of white smoke.
For a standard ,under guarantee model... kick up some stink.. get em to regen it and some kind of assurance it wont happen again!!!
Me I had to pay cos it wasa remap Id applied...you if the dpf is the problem its all on renault to fix to your satisfaction
Currently in coup's garage:
RM III coupe 1.5dci FVT,Audi TT Mk1 ,a bike and too much rubbish.
