    Hey, Looking for some insight. Today I drained my gearbox oil, first time I have done it personally but it was changed around 3 years ago though not many miles in that time, certainly under 5000. Renault Master 2.8 2000 This is what I found. The oil was very dark. There was lots of very...

    Hi, First post here. I recently purchased a Renault Koleos. Very nice except the clunks over pot holes, bumps etc are very annoying. I took a look under the car while it was on the ramp getting tires changed and I found:- a. the front drop down links need replacing - these are being replaced b...

    I would upload a video I have just done but I only know how to upload a photo! 2011 Grand Scenic, when you open the drivers door with the electric handbrake off you hear a loud beeping noise and a message saying 'Apply Handbrake' to obviously tell you too apply it. However the beeping noise is...

  8. Heating & cooling
    Have had my Koleos 2.0 for 8 months and my water temperature gauge has never gone above just over the first quarter of the indicator. Although we dont want an engine to overheat, this does seem unusually cool compared to previous cars Ive had. Consequently, when we do have cold days, the heater...

    What area of the engine is the pcv valve or is it within a pipe like some are? Could a faulty pcv valve cause smoke as in video https://youtu.be/gUOVJ-2vJvk Sent from my GT-I9300 using Tapatalk

    Went to look at a Clio Mk3 (59 Plate) 1.5dci GT 106bhp for the sister tonight and was very impressed but there was one slight thing I'm unsure on Turned the ignition on (but not started the car) and all lights went out besides the 'Toxic Fume Warning Light', which would stay on continuously...

    2009 Scenic 3, 1.4 TCE 130 BHP, 44k miles, it hasn't done much but sit in a dealers car park for 8 months and previous to that it covered about 5,000 miles in just a year so I gather this things pretty dusty. Its had regular oil changes but i dont think the last 2 services were 'proper' as...

    When I rev my clio at idle the rpms always drop before going up. So I push accelerator > revs drop by 200 rpm for half a second then go up. This makes the lights in the car dim momentarily as the car only idles at ~750rpm What could this be?

    Hi all, Spent 4 hours on the car today washing, cleaning and checking it over but when checking under the oil filler cap I noticed a strange yellow gunk which I haven't seen before. It looks absolutely disgusting, a bit like mucus. See pictures. Is this normal? What is the gunk and is it...

    Hey guys, I've done a quick search for this but since it's a fairly new model i'm guessing no ones had any real reason to go looking under the engine cover yet. So heres the story, brought my Megane (1.9dci 130bhp) from carcraft last month (a mistake I now realise), it's been great up until...

    When I read my Megane 2 1.5dci using an OBD reader (ESM327) it shows 15.3% for Absolute Throttle Position on idle. Is this normal? (I've searched extensively but couldn't find "normal" figures anywhere on the internet)

    Hi all, I'm a recent owner of a Renault Fluence and it has an LCD Screen on the dashboard that displays radio channels, CD players songs titles, etc... Another square LCD also sits next to the Speedometer and that one displays info like Fuel, Kms used, etc. In daylight, both are bright blue...

    Hi all , I have a non functional cylinder #2 on my 2002 laguna v6. I have worked out (as have a couple of renault shops) that the issue is not the coil or the spark plug so assuming I'm left with an ECU or wiring fault somewhere. I'm in the process of unwrapping and following the 2 x cables...
