Hello all again, in my last post I asked about the problem im having with my 2001 Master 2.2dCi.

Just to reitterate, the problem was basically something like this :

The van will sit idling all day,take it for a drive, couple of miles down the road, its loses all power, lets out a lot of smoke and the engine rattles as the engine dies.

So as im stuck by the side of the road the engine will spin over no bother, but wont fire.Let it cool down and off it goes,big smokes then it cleares and the van drives fine for another wee while.
Tried disconnecting the EGR with no luck.
It uses no water and no oil.

So took it to my local Renault garage only to be told that they had put the diagnostic into it and it showed up no faults other than the EGR which they said would be because I had disconected it.
They also check all the wiring to ECU to make sure there was no breaks anywhere.

Now I was told by them, basically I need to replace the engine.:eek: They say it something going wrong when the engine gets up to temperature.Which is strange as it will idle till the sun goes down.So ive taken my van back and now Im Completely stuck.:(:(
Got a few opinons of a few other mechanics,some say the Crank sensor, ECU and even the pump!

Can anybody help me!?:confused::confused:

As you dont have diagnostics your self to see what is happening in the live data as the prob starts
I would say start with the crank sensor take it out and give it a good clean as it sounds like you are loosing the rpm signal when the engine heats & speeds up

Thanks for the speedy reply!Excellent.

Can somebody perhaps tell where the crank senor is located?:eek:
Think this forum is faster than Google.

Hi, Crank sensor is in the bell housing towards the rear of the engine, (underneath) also check the camshaft sensor which is on the belt end of the engine about 10 cm down from the top and towards the front of the engine.
But from your description I would be doing a leak off test from the injectors it sound like you could have a Duff injector or maybe two.
