Hi all,

I have just joined up looking for a bit of info on an engine I picked up from the scrapyard last weekend.

I was told by the scrapyard that it was a 2.0L 16v Renault engine, but that was it!

It has 'RENAULT' stamped in various places, so he was obviously right about that bit, and there are a few codes/serial numbers printed on other various components, which I have listed and photographed below to help identify the engine.

The engine in question...



Block code



Oil lifter and oil lifter code





Camshaft pulley (of which there are 2(twin cam engine))



Clutch



And probably the most identifyable part, the cam cover...



Iv had a quick google of the various codes, but was just presented with the usual garbage, nothing at all relevant to a Renault engine!

So just for clarification, it is a petrol, 2.0L 16v twin cam, 4cylinder renault engine!

Does anybody know what it is actually from, fingers crossed it'l be a Clio 182/172 lump?! :d

Thanks to anybody who can help, Dan!

Thanks Hoochy.

After a quick check on Parkers with the information above, it looks like it is primarily from a '96/'99 Megane, 115hp engine.

Il do a little further investigation for clarification, but thanks for the info man! :D

115bhp = 2.0 8v (F3R)... If it is a twin cam 2.0, it must be an F4R or F5R... But what from, and at what power level I don't know. Could be anything from 135/140bhp in run of the mill configurations (most likely) or as you say, a Clio 172/182 engine. It certainly doesn't belong in the boot of a 205 :p

Ah right, okay then, that gives me something else to think about... :confused:

Il have another look over the block tonight, and see if I can spot any other markings, specifically F4R/F5R.

Tha scrap yard it was from specialise in Renaults/citroens/peugeots, and often break cars like 106 gtis, saxos, clio sports etc, so its quite likely its a sportier engine.

And I know it doesnt belong in the boot of a 205, but I only bought it as a project, and its now completely dismantled in my shed, with 2 bent valves and a dented piston, so it was essentially a 'scap' engine, and they sold it to me for £30! :D

Thanks for the help, Dan!

Upon further investigation..



Its an F4. Not an F4R however..

Does this help with finding out what engine it will be then?
