My gr espace 2.2dt which I've had for a couple of months has died, it's got 160.000klms had the timing, belt tensioners an water pump changed, recently serviced, (all filters an oil)
Driving this afternoon it started going clack clack clack rising an falling withe the engine revs, lost nearly all power then died,
on engine over run the clacking was all but gone, had the car towed to my local renault garage where they tried to tow start it, it all but fired an died with lots of black smoke.
sounds expesive, I know it's a very loose explanaction, but any ideas, where I am it's a long bank holiday an the garage wont start looking at it till wedensday.

I'm thinking more or less the same, valves or rings,
Not being well up on espace engines, one thing I have noticed is that for any work on the engine it has to come out,
Does the 2.2dt have wet liners?
