    I removed the upper inlet manifold to find the lower inlet had a layer of gunk. What's the best way to clean it? I can only get so far with a brush, because the inlet curves. Also, how do I safely clean an electronic throttle body whilst it's still attached and plugged in, without interrupting...

    I've removed all the bolts as shown on the following video: However, My intake just won't lift off. I'm worried about pulling or rocking it too hard as I don't want to damage the intake or the seals underneath. Suggestions? Thank you.

    Having trouble with a Renault traffic 1.9dci 100. A few minutes after start up grey smoke starts appearing from the exhaust that gets worse the warmer the engine gets. I removed the inlet that comes from the air box at the turbo end and the smoke stopped. Checked intercooler ipes and there is...

    Today,whilst driving from cold, my sons Clio temporarily lost power, spluttered and then recovered but felt a bit flat on initial acceleration. Back home we've checked it out and it starts fine and idles smoothly but on acceleration the engine briefly flat spots whilst a short wheezing sound is...

    I own a 2002 1,8 l, Laguna that have an oil leak from around the inlet camshaft. I have replaced the defaser (VVT sprocket) and the oil seal for the inlet camshaft but its still leaks oil. I hav also checked the VVT solenoid function, by putting 12VDC to the connectors, and it works. Is there...

    Hi there, I took the car to a garage who did a scan for a fault reading and he said that the the air inlet temp reading was -40 (minus 40). When I looked into the Haynes manual Index for the the air inlet temp sensor, they're only listing a one for the petrol version. Has the diesel 1.5 cdi...

    As above at the weekend I am going to replace the inlet manifold gaskets on my espace 2.2dci (the race) mk 3, I have read up on how to do it on the laguna with the same engine, are there any issues I might come accross doing it on the espace as the engine is more under the bulkhead, any comments...

    I recently had some rain coming in the footwell. I think it was because the drain holes under the scuttle panel were blocked (mostly by the rubber covers Renault put in!). However it only took a little build-up for the rain level to go over the cabin air inlet which is just an open hole! Is it...

    Hi guys. While my car is still off the road I thought it would be a good Idea to get the inlet manifold off as it's full of crap and give it a good clean. Now I know the Mk1 Megane is a complete pain in the **** to work on but I have never come across such a hard car. I have removed all bolts...

    Ive been repairing a fire damaged 2002/3 1.2 16v clio. Ive got the car running again but the lower manifold was pretty badly burnt. I thought I had got away with replacing it but it looks like this might not be the case. It drove fine for about 5 mile then started playing up. The cars...
