Hi everyone,I am a driving instructor from Luton.I drive a Clio 1.5 dci.I am very interested to hear from any members who have had any problems in relation to this car or type of engine.Especially if this problem relates to the injectors,and what might be tell tale signs of such a problem,ie,engine noise.Any help would be much appreciated.Thanks..........Richard.

Hi and welcome richard - what kind of problems are you having. The first sign injectors are going is usually white grey smoke from the exhaust which means incomplete combustion of the fuel.:)

There have been a few reported problems of injectors on 2.2dCi's giving problems,but these have usually caused the engine to cut out intermittantly.This is usually caused by them being contaminated with diesel that contains small metal filings which come from elsewhere in the diesel system(usually the primary pump breaking up).

I am yet to here of any problems with the 1.5's though.

Welcome to the forum,by the way.:)
