    so the last few days i know its been cold but the temp guage has been a little erratic. it comes to temp no probs with the 1st bar on the guage and then happily fills in the rest to the middle as normal. i then get either half way down the motorway to my partners so about 30 miles or off the...

    Hi again I had the fuel warning light on in a Clio 1 1.9D 1991. I put about 10 litres in the tank but the needle is only just on the red line. Is this normal. Can I check both the guage or meter in situ? Cheers R

    My electronic fuel gauge seems to have stopped working, it is like it 'freezes'. it was stuck on full for several days. So, I disconnected the battery so see if it would reset, I thought I had solved it, as it lost two bars on the display. But then, it stayed like this for several more days. So...

    Hi All the options work in my Scenic RX4, but I noticed when I am driving the fuel estimator keeps flashing dotted lines and does not give me a reading of how much fuel I have estimated before the next fill up. All the other options in the onboard computer work As well, I did as the manual...

    Hi everyone, Can anyone help with these questions regarding a diesel 1.5 cDi. 1. How long or how far should I need to travel for the engine temperature gauge to show the engine is at operating temperature? Mine can often take 20 minutes for the bar to move up to its operating line. I once drove...

    My engine temp guage rises quickly to just below half but then never moves any higher. I have checked true temp with independant means and the fan cuts in normally at about 85'. Anyone any suggestions? Also I struggle to achieve anything better than 30mpg - is this normal?

    Hi there, I recently replaced my built in stereo with another built in stereo from the same model clio. I dont know if the above has anything to do with the problem I am having with my digital fuel guage, but you may need to know anyway. Basically, the manual fuel guage seems to be working...

    I have a Megane II (2003, 1.4 16v) whose fuel guage has become... indecisive! I filled up with fuel at the weekend and the guage showed 3/4 full (bit odd as the pump clicked off suggesting tank was full), then drove 30 miles and the guage was 1/4 full. Stopped, checked for fuel gushing out...

    Hi, my Renault Kangoo's fuel guage doesn't work. The car has had a wheelchair conversion which means that I have to drop the fuel tank to get at the sender unit, which I would like to avoid if possible. The fuel warning light seems to be operative. Do they work independently, or does this mean...

My car is a...
