    I have a 1996 Espace 2.1Td which i have not used for a year or so, it was running fine, unfortunatly now it wont start. ive bled the fuel system, but the engine spins over like a watch (not compressing anything), so im thinking the stop solenoid may be jammed in stopping the fuel.

    After the recent cold snap our espace became reluctant to start, but would eventually fire up with a very rough idle and clouds of white/grey white smoke coming from the exhaust. I removed the glow plugs and measured them with a multimeter, 2 read 1-2 ohms the other 2 were O/C, replaced the glow...

    Hi everyone. This is my first post and I do feel a little churlish asking for help straight away, but I have a bit of a problem with my aging 118,000 mile N-Reg Renault 21 Savanna 2.1TD and it's worrying me. :o Suddenly the old girl has decided that it will take some few seconds to get going...
