This being a diesel, lack of compression is your worst enemy. These symptoms sound like a blown head gasket. Check your coolant for signs of oil, and check your oil for signs of coolant. (oil will be milky looking) Also indicative of a head gasket problem is an oil or coolant leak from the engine as well. If you see no evidence of the above, have a compression test done, and it should show up.

SOURCE: i have a cracked oil

Steel putty may work, but it is at best a short term solution and even with the most diligently cleaned and roughened surface, will eventually come loose due it expansion differences in the materials. The permanent solutions is to either replace the oil pan or have the crack brazed up professionally. Both will require removal of the oil pan.

SOURCE: renault megane scenic coolant loss

A small leak in the head gasket will cause the coolant to disappear,but will not always be visible steam from the tailpipe.(small leak).A good way to check for this is to remove the spark plugs(keep them in order),and see if one of them is cleaner than the rest.(The coolant will steam clean the plug,and leave a slight greenish hue in some cases).If you do find this,you're looking at doing a head gasket.

What is the brown sludge in my water coolant and why has my engine lost power on my 05 Renault megane coupe cabriolet


Sludge is engine oil. Add lost power and = you have blown head gasket or cracked head. Sorry to convey such bad news.

Oil in water tank


Oil is entering water system via a small leak in the head gasket adjacent to the oil drilling where the oil comes from the pump through the head gasket up to the head itself to lubricate the camshaft / valve gear. Or, there is a problem with the oil cooler found on a lot of Renaults. If you look at the oil filter there may be a metal donut looking piece with 2 x 3/4 water hoses attached to it. Because the oil pressure is 40+ lbs and the water is 14lbs when running, and if the cooler has an internal leak / fracture, the oil will gradually pass to the water jacket by virtue of the greater pressure.
Disconnect the 2 hoses and join the 2 block ends together with a length of hose, refill the coolant, run the engine for a while and see if there is any trace of oil or bubbles coming from the now open oil cooler stubs. If there is then the cooler is leaking internally. Replacement is the only option. The biggest problem you face is that the engine block, radiator, heater matrix are all carrying the oil sludge that's been circulating the water system. Cleaning all that out successfully may be your biggest quest.
How do I know all this, I'm just doing the same job on a Renault Clio diesel!!
Get some quality help, prepare yourself for changing the head gasket, timing belt etc. I'm going to flush mine with a strong detergent mix on reassembly, running a garden hose into the upper rad stub and allowing the lower to vent out and hope it brings most with it. Only a hot washer would help and I've bought a new header tank from online to replace the discoloured one when there's no gunk left. Good luck.

Oil in water


Is it a foamy substance? If so it is not oil it is the new coolant that is called extended life, it breaks down and turns to what appears to be an oily brown sludge. Have the system flushed thoroughly and add the new coolant that doesn't do this.

The coolant in my renault clio keeps draining i am told its not the head gasket


The head gasket on the R 5 is aluminum,Just see if your oil is like turning a white colour.
if not then its not the top gasket and you can check the water pipes,even a small leak can cause this when the water heats up and build presure so you dont see it coz your driving.

also check the water bottle's cap if it seals properly,you can loose water from steam too...

Hope this helps...
