  1. Heating & cooling
    Got a very slight coolant leak on wife's Espace. 2.0dCi engine, 150ps. Basically having covered about 5000 miles between checks it's lost half the volume of the expansion tank, maybe 1-2 litres. It's not dropping on the ground/undertray that I can see so I think it's going somewhere 'hot' and...

    hi 2012 Clio 3 tce It's started sounding a bit "knocky" on uneven surfaces, also I can detect a tiny (just perceptible) amount of play in the O/S wheel when the car is sitting and I rock the O/S wheel top to bottom. (grab top of wheel and push/pull) I can't detect any play in N/S - I assume...

    Hi, Renault Clio 1.5 dCi Automatic (2015). I have a minor problem (hopefully). Occasionally, when pulling away (automatic), I get a slight judder for a couple of seconds before my speed increases and everything returns to normal. This doesn't happen all the time. Any idea what this could be...

    Hi guys. My Renault Grand Modus 2009 1.6vvt automatic I've just purchased over the last couple of days has started making a low high pitched mouse like noise when I turn left slowly. Any help would be appreciated only 16,000 miles on the clock. Thanks.

    Hi Guys, I have a 2010 1.2 TCE, Renault Grand Modus, with 36000 Miles on the clock. The strange issue I am having is when I accelerate, when in 4th or 5th gear for example, when I put my foot down on accelerator pedal the car will start - sort-of shake, resisting to accelerate, but...

    At 60mph or higher, the car feels like it has a slight judder in motion. I can feel slight vibration throughout the car. Tyre pressure is correct and the car is perfectly smooth under 60mph. Back left wheel has an outer counter balance weight near the air inlet. Air inlet is positioned right...

    Hi, I own a Renault Clio 1.2 TCE (2007). Over the last couple of days whilst driving I've experienced a slight loss of power.

    I bought a 1.2 16v Clio Campus Sport a week ago. It has passed its MOT with no advisories last month. However, I have noticed a low level grumbling noise when steering. It is more pronounced when turning the steering wheel to the left and there is a single click just before it gets to full lock...

    Soooo brief history. Bought a Clio mk3 06 1.4 petrol last April and have nothing but problems since. Most of it was engine management light coming on and car juddering. After 5 trips to garages the light has seemed to stay off however the juddering is just as bad. I also have just noticed that...

Last week my steering wheel - and only when the engine is on- started to have a slight noise when turning to the right or left for about10 cm...:confused: It is not very annoying still but maybe in the future it could get worse.:crazy: As much as I could find...

    Hello. So my 1.4 06 mk3 Clio has been idling rough since a day after ny 3 month warranty ran out (typical? Yes indeed) It was juddering quite a bit and had a rough idle (drop slowly from 1000 down to about 700) I took it to one garage who found no faults. About a month later on a drive it lost...

    Hi all, As the title says I have a couple of issues with my Clio MK1. I just got back from a long road trip and it was fine away and with all the motorway miles but now, perhaps un-related, the idle is really jerky - a lot more than before...not so smooth! The revs sit at 800 which I think seems...
