    Renault Megan Dynamique 1.9dci blows black smoke when turbo kicks in. No lack of power before turbo starts and no lack of power while turbo is on. Only had one month so I do not know if last owner allowed engine to warm up and down. Also I know it had a new turbo fitted 10 month ago. Serviced every year and quality oil used.

    There is no lack of power before turbo starts or when turbo is running. Just a lot of black smoke when turbo kicks is.

Does it smoke? Could possibly be sticking EGR valve. Remove and clean, or blank off and try running without it. If it runs better, this is your problem.

I have a 04 renault traffic van 1.9 dci i have recently had new turbo fitted and glow plugs, but glow light still goes out after 1 second and thats in the morning when i go to start her i also have had...

sounds like a bad sensor. the glow plugs should stay on long enough to reach a certain temperature, especially when it's cold. So turning off after 1 second is not nearly enough. There may be a problem with sensing the temperature of the glow plugs.

Torque setings

if it is a solid bearing do it up as tight as you can.if it is a tapered bearing do it up untill the nut is touching the bearing check the hub for play if you have got play do the nut up a bit more until the play is gone in the hub.make sure you do not over tighten the bearing or the wheel will not turn freely.the wheel needs to spin with no drag.

Renault trafic 1.9 dci new turbo but lights on dash still on stop

This is a problem with the onboard management computer. It probably wasn't reset by the mechanic when the new turbo was fitted. You'll need to take it to someone with the correct diagnostic equipment to get this fault erased. Avoid Renault dealerships. They'll charge anything from £80 to £400 to clear an error. Best find someone independent.

Lack of power

Buy an FSE valve you will get about 15-20% more power. Don't play with the turbo it will just break. If you wind the pump up look out for smoke from unburnt fuel and wind it back until it stops.

1999 Ford mondeo 'turbo deisel' not working?

what doesnt work ? the turbo ,
they arnt the most powerful engine in the world but reliability is outstanding subject to oil , filters and cambelt changes, at the correct intervals,
the engine should give good mid range touque with a little smoke , if it doesnt the chances are the wastgate on the turbo is leaking especialy with the milage , but to be fair on a car that age i would probably put up with the lack of power than spend money repairing it providing its running ok

Hi there!

It's very likely a valve stem seal that has split. This will allow oil into the cylinder from the crank gallery.

Off with it's head! I'm afraid.

The only other thing it can be is overfueling - but then it will be sputtering and lagging on acceleration.
You can check which cylinder is affected by removing the plugs and looking for the oily one. They will all need replacing really as it's false economy to do just 1. The seals are cheap. I would get a new cambelt fitted at the same time - as it has to come off anyway.

(If this leads to a solution, please take the time to rate as Fixya! - Thank you)
