    Ask the Experts
    The high level brake light bar (LEDs?) over the rear windscreen has stopped working. I've searched high and low to find out how to remove the bar, without success.

    2014 renault trafic 1.6, dci115 (R9M-408). 100k Miles. Runs beautifully smooth on cold mornings- like a well tuned petrol. Generally, when warm, runs like crap. Very "exhaust gassy, raspy, old diesel" sounding. Only slight performance loss, if any. When rough, PCV valve has pretty high...

    Hi guys, Been busy lately with the mortgage formalities and finally got stuck into 30 years of debt relationship with the bank >:) While wife`s Civic is getting older (2008), it still has low number on the counter - we have around 47K miles. Two things I do not like, terrible paint quality...
  8. Very high oil consumption Clio II 1.2 16v

    I took a turn at moderate speeds (about 50kph) and my oil pressure light went on. I assumed because the bend was tight and long that the oil pump couldn't get to the oil. As it turns out I had so little oil that it barely showed on the dipstick. The dashboard oil level indicator said i had...

  11. High pitched sound when slightly revving cold engine? Clio 2007

    Clio MK2's seem to never not have a fecking issue. Yesterday I noticed this slight noise. Wasn't as bad as it was today. Car had been sitting all night. The sound only seems to happen when cold. Noise is non-existent when its at operating temperature. I've included a video of the sound and what...

    I have a Grand Scenic 1.5dCi model 2011 with automatic transmission and about 250 thousand kilometers driven. I've had the car for about three months and I've been wondering if the fuel consumption is too high. Average consumption for our mixed driving climbs up to 8.5 liters per 100 km. I've...
  13. Clio 1.2 mk2 '02 High fuel consumption no warning lights

    My daughter's Clio suffered misfire, which turned out to be the coil pack, which was changed. Since then, it's been using a lot of petrol, and lacks power. There are no warning lights on, and reading the codes with a cheap reader only tells of Transmission temperature sensor faulty. It starts...

    Hi, About 6 months ago I acquired a 2010 Renault Grand Scenic, petrol 1.4TCe (Dynamique TomTom) with roughly 55k miles. It’s a good vehicle but recently its developed some quirks which point to something being wrong. It has an almost ‘Jekyll and Hyde’ personality, sometimes it drives zippy...

When starting from cold the revs are high, even when the temp outside is over 20 degrees, have to wait a few minutes for it to settle , if I drive off before this the car is spluttering as if it's over fueling like the old choke system if you didn't push it back in...

  20. Intermittent high idle Laguna 2.0 16V 2006 **Sorted**

    I'm scratching my head on what is wrong. Car works fine 95% of the time idles nicely around 850-900 rpm however sometimes when you drive the idle is getting stuck at 1500 rpm, sometimes a blip of the throttle can make it idle ok again, other times not. I've already replaced the throttle body...
