SOURCE: my renault meganes orange engine light keeps flashing and my car

look on the brake pedal assembly and their is some sensors that run off the throttle and brake and clutch,could be these are playing.But it is a renault with encrypted software so evan if you can get fault codes read they dont always show the right fault codes ,this is deliberate ploy to create work for the dealers.Trust me on this one

Sounds like you're not running on all 4 cylinders all the time. Could be one or more dirty spark plugs, bad ignition coils, etc. You'll ruin the engine when you don't get it fixed quickly, even after repairing you might notice a significant hp-decrease.

My advice would be to take it to the dealer asap and have them troubleshoot. Since they can read the faultcodes from the car's ECU, it should give a good pointer to the cause.

SOURCE: renault megane engine light flashing and car is juddering.

I have 2 meganes im working on at the moment both have the same problem. the electrical falt light is on coz the pipe has snapped (or come off) under the bonnet on the passangers side close to the window (theres a black box about 2 inch wide the pipe connects underneath). if I reconect the pipe and grab the engien with both hands it wobbles and the pipe pulls off. I suspect this is coz one (or all) the engien mountings are shagged. and this will be the cause of the juddering when driveing in first and second gears. solutions iv have come across for juddering involve changeing the coil pack but thats nothing to do with the problem my 2 cars have as one of them has new coils. they are 1.6 petrol, p reg and s reg

I have T5 2.5 turbo Drive for about 5 minutesthen it starts to judder between 1500 to 1800 rpm gets worse on light throtle .put foot on throttle or back off and judder goes away then ASR light comes on...


you may have a bad turbo it is common on the vw. with engine off take off big black tube and see if filled up with oil. if has alot of oil it in it will need to be replaced.
did the cam code come back on or was this a old code stored in memory?

RenaultClio 1.5dci juddering when started if it was going stall


These type of engines have direct rail injection so each cylinder has an injector. The problem sounds like the engine is only running on 3 cylinders (or less). It could be a faulty injector. Are you losing coolant? Is it overheating? Is there steam or excessive smoke coming out of the exhaust tail pipe?
