  1. Weird warm start, read below

    My 2003 1.5dci starts really hardly when it is hot, but fine at the morning. Yesterday i found out, that after i put it in first gear then try to start (so it jumps one), it starts. Maybe it is not knowing the positions of the pistons. Is it TDC sensor? Just because i already changed it, can it...

    Ask the Experts
    Hi I have a 2005 Renault Master 2.5cdi 100 and when the van is parked uphill it is hard to start but if it is on level ground it starts OK.

Strangely, when I use Apple navigation (or...
