    Hello all, I am having a problem with the starting if the above car. We bought it recently as a second car and had problems straight away. We had to replace all the coils and spark plugs(only two were faulty but decided to do all in case the others also faulted). It has been running ok but as...

I have had it twice now always when I have parked on a hill where in my case when the car is facing down hill though I have read the problem also occurs with the car facing uphill and again...

    Hi all, I had a squealing fanbelt so thought I'd get that changed and get the cambelt done at the same time to save on the labour for the cambelt as some of the work already done. When I collected the car it was really difficult to start, the starter was going for about 4 seconds or so and the...

    I have a 2002 Scenic RX4 diesel CDi which is difficult to get into reverse gear. All the others are okay. Is this likely to be a problem with the gear change linkages? Might it help to change the gear box oil? Does anyone know if you can adjust the clutch - although it seems okay? Any advice...

    I have an RX4 Scenic 2002 CDi diesel. It is quite difficult to get reverse gear and seems to be getting worse. Can anyone tell me if there is clutch adjustment on this model or what the fault might be? Would much appreciate your help. Phil:confused:

    Hi everyone, just joined today to try and find out how difficult it is to change a turbo on Espace 2.2dci 53 plate. I got the car towed back to a garage who told me the car needs a new turbo and the old one was sucking up the oil from the engine - therefor clouds of smoke from the exhaust...

    This week I went out in my 2003 diesel kangoo van after half a hour I noticed that the glow plug light was showing. I was out all day stopping and staring with no problem however next day it would only start if I cranked the engine over for a long time. Is it the glow plugs that have failed or...

    Have been dealing with this for a few weeks now, read loads on the forum but have not been able to find a solution yet! Starting from cold is difficult, the engine needs to turn over twice as long as it normally would and the first 10 seconds or so the rpm drops to 500 a few times and the car...

    I've tried to find a thread with this problem but without any luck, so I hope that I haven't missed it. This is my sister's car and I am posting on her behalf. The Kangoo who is called Pat (he's ex Royal Mail) has been struggling to start for about the last six months/5,000 miles and has been...

    Hi, I have a 1999 Renault laguna I which has some difficulty starting, especially when it is cold. I have to crank the engine quite some time(up to 30 seconds) in order to start it. It doesnt seem to make a difference if i crank continiously or if i stop, let the fuel pump run for a bit, and...

    I have bought Renaults since my Renault16 in 1975. I am now on my second Grand Scenic and would love to buy a new one. My Grand Scenic is a 2 litre automatic but the only automatic is now 1.5 litre which for a car that is often loaded up does not seem man enough for the job. The Sunday Times...

    Ayup fellas. I've never really posted on here before, but I read quite often as I've had 3 Clios. I did look around for the answer to this and I thought I'd found it but I'm not sure. Basically, I drove from Sheffield to Leeds last weekend, and halfway up the M1 I realised my car was making a...

    I have a 2000 1.8 16v Laguna Alize. Over the past week it has become difficult to start from cold, it used to fire up straight away but now takes more time before starting. I serviced it this summer inc new plugs, filters (air and petrol). The weather has been very wet this week and starting to...

    Gears have always been weird on my 2000 Espace, but as the evenings are getting colder here in South Wales, the early morning start ups are getting to be a real pain. Reverse is a complete no go, and 1st is very awkward to get into. The minute the engine hits 4 bars for the temperature, (normal...
