Re: renault traffic starting problems

Me too... I was just wondering why bernie thought it might be an earth strap after you said the cranking speed was OK.

Re: renault traffic starting problems

Excuse this very basic question, but when was the fuel filter last serviced?

Well if you're convinced its feul starvation its either something tripping ECU or something mechanically wrong.

Have you tried all the generic fixes to do with bad starts? Clean EGR, change TDC sensor. Etc etc?

Leaking feul - if large amount wouldn't let car start and car would cut out. Small amount would cause hesitation especially pulling away, perhaps cut out. All these syptoms would be 'spluttery' rather than 'crisp' problems. So if they are as they sound - clear/crisp cut offs it points to ECU surely?
Perhaps as its such a strange problem its worth having a proper diagnostic ran on it? - could spend a lot of time and cash trying to fix something that could have been trivial.. personal opinion

cleaned out egr valve today wasnt that bad no fuel leaks havnt tried cam sensor or crank sensor other than checking connection van drives 100% once going but if you rev it out threw gears it seems to hold back once to get to 4000rpm its like a cut off point limiter rather than that it drives fine


ALSO HAD A DIAGNOSTIC DONE AND COMPUTER WAS SAYING O2 SENSOR AND THERE IS NO O2 SENSOR ON THE VAN BUT THIS IS PROBABLY DOWN TO IT NOT BEING DONE BY RENAULT SOFTWARE
