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.
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.
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.
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
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.
