  3. Renault Scenic lack of power at low RPM

    Engines
    I have recently bought a "14" plate Scenic diesel and have noticed a very significant lack of power below 1500 rpm. I am told by the dealer that this is "turbo lag" and is normal. I cannot find any reference to this on the 1,5 DCI , but is common on the 1.9 DCI engine due to a sticking EGR...
