I have a 51 kangoo 1.9 with lucas epic, had allsorts of trouble since getting this van and got to the bottom of it finally, piston rings worn / low compression.

Have now swopped out with a donor engine but cant get it going. Turn it over, it starts on the button, live data on fault code reader shows it gets to 1700rpm then cuts out, try again same thing, runs fro 2-3 secs then shuts off - glow plug light comes on when it shuts off. dont think my generic fault code reader or my elm one can read renault codes as its just showing no faults but must be one, replaced the tdc/crank sensor this morn as was getting no live rpm data new sensor is now working.

Anybody got any idea's? this van is starting to drive me nuts, esp after a full day doing engine change

Ah well got there in the end, 1 renault clip later, connected and pump timing is out of limits causing it to cut out.... will time it up now and see how it goes...
