  6. Cracked engine block?

    Hi guys, I have a Megane II 2003, 1.9 dci. I noticed that my coolant is mixing with my engine oil.

  11. New kid on the block

    Welcome to RenaultForums
    Hi from Scenic2311, ditched my thirsty Isuzu Trooper LWB V-6 / 3.5 petrol 4x4 tank as I did not do much off road driving anyway and bought a Renault Megane Scenic 1.9 dCi.

For example, when leaving a 30mph limit area into a National. I would usually be in third gear, I put my foot...
