    My clio (08 plate) has had a recent injection problem - warning light came on, diagnosis came back with turbo fault, verdict, had to change turbo solenoid.

    Engines
    My clio has developed an oscillating whistling noise (it is not the normal turbo whistle), I can't hear it when the car is stationary and I rev it. It sounds like it is comming from the rear of the car but it is always difficult to be sure. It is worst when driving at 70mph, is also present...

  9. Renault Scenic 1 - High Engine RPM At 70MPH

    Engines
    Hello, all.. I apologise if this is covered in a thread elsewhere, but after some searching for "power", "RPM" etc, I couldn't find any which really matched. It could be my imagination, but I think there's possibly something amiss.. My X reg 1400cc Petrol Scenic II needs me to sit at 3700RPM...

  12. Power steering failed while doing 70MPH on the M25

    Steering and Suspension
    Not a fun experience recently, while driving home. Was doing a steady 70MPH on the M25. Felt a slight jerk with the steering, and immediately a load beep from the dash. The display said "power steering fault". Can't remember the exact words. I exited the M25 and stopped in a convenient place...

    Electronics
    Recently my Clio has developed a fault whereby the ABS & SERV lights illuminate when my speed reaches about 68 mph. However, when I turn the ignition off, wait a couple of seconds, and turn the ignition back on - the ABS/SERV lights reset themselves an everything functions properly. I wondered...
