Re: yellow dip stick
This is not a problem what had happen is that the clips might not just clip into place anymore just pick up a new one and stick it in you need to get the right one for your car tho as if you don't it may not give the right reading

probally be a good idea to have a local shop run a fuel system check to eliminate alot of wasted time or money. its well worth the time to have it properly checked by a trained mechanic. alot of engine problems the computer picks up wont be noticed at first and can lead to expensive repairs
there are several reasons why you dont want excessive oil in the engine .. first if the level is high enough then the rods and crankshaft can dip into it .as they spin .. this whips the oil into a foam which is no longer a good lub .. the oil foam may get into the upper cylinders causing it to be burned which can contaminate the CAT converter .. it can foul plugs and in general damage the engine .. air contaminated oil does not lubracate or cool the rod bearings properly .. the air in the oil can "crack" (denaturize) under the pressure of the valve lifters, beaings and other places where high pressure exists .. this further damages the oil ... you definately dont want excessive oil ..
Try the relays under the bonnet fuse box 4 small black ones in a line, the first 2 from top cut of the fuel pump, and are a renowned cause of 85% of cranking without starting faults on the dci engine swap them over for the bottom 2 . If it starts, buy 2 from Renault and fit if the engine still fails to start the egr valve may be stuck closed starving the engine of air, its on the top of the engine at the air intake and has 3 bolts, remove it and clean it with carb cleaner then check its condition, if it appears ok, replace the cleaned one, if not you need a new one or the turbo will blow its seals and the engine will rev and burn on the engines own oil. beyond this and your diy fixes are at an end without a obd2 code reader.
