Hi

My Espace 3l v6 is having an occasional engine issue, it seems to happen when the car is warm, normal temp, and its warm/hot outside, basically I go to start the engine wait for the OK on the dash, turn the key, the engine starts and the OK screen goes totally orange and the engine dies, I can start it after with a press on the gas and it runs fine. Also sometimes my OIL check on the dash say its full, half or even empty, but when I check the dipstick it nearly full! Any ideas whats wrong? Cheers Michael. :confused:

First thing to check for me would be ECT sensor which is just under air inlet hose. next possibility is wiring problem. I had it on my espace v6 and it was a nightmare. I ended up driving it to a friend - wiring specialist. it had a few melted wires under air filter box and due to them being short circuited 2 wires were melted all way to body module.

Hope this helps
