Question about Renault Cars & Trucks
The oil had to be topped up every week, but no obvious fault could be detected. Now it looks as if the engine, already replaced with a re-conditioned engine 3 years ago, will have to be replaced again.

Hello, i have recently purchase an 85 vanagon westfalia, with a 93 turbo diesel toyota engine, and it does not fit, so some modifications were made, such as the matress on top of the engine on the back had to be cut ,, its like a big square, its not that bad, i can still put a thin matress on top of that square and its just not as soft,,, but my real problem is that i still have the same 4 gear vw transmition, so i am now in the quest of a vw golf 5 gear transmition that would fit , my other option was a subaru transmition ,, but it was kind of expensive, if anyone reading this know of other options please let me know ,, also i was told that i have to change the radiator & fan for a bigger one and also see a way to install some sort of fan right next to the engine on the back,, since diesel engines run hotter,, i am not really a gear head ,, dont know much about this things.... any comments or recommendations?

Diesels do lose a little oil out the blow-by tube. If the engine temp. is higher then normal then you will lose more then normal amounts. If you are not leaking it then you are burning it, Possibly worn rings, head-gasket, or oil leak inside turbo. 68 MPH and higher doesn't sound unusual, is the engine still stock?

There is a oil drain return from the turbo charger to the sump. If the sump oil level covers the outlet into the sump, oil will build excess pressure tin the turbo causing the sealing rings to leak oil in to the intake manifold. This would cause smokey exhaust and loss of oil. Try this. Drain the sump completely, refill with the exact quantity of oil to Mazda spec. Dip the oil and if the new oil level is lower than the full mark on the dipstick, you have found the cause of the problem. Mark this new level with a scriber or file and fill only to this new level. Hope this is the solution.
