SOURCE: Hissing sound from brake pedal of Renault Scenic 2001

Hi,
From your description this appears to be a Brake servo issue.
The brakes are assisted by a vacuum created from the draw off the inlet manifold, it gives assistance too the brake pedal pressure by a large tank/cylinder mounted on the Bulkhead/firewall.
I feel that the sound you a hearing is air being draw into the Brake Servo from the foot pedal seal and the reason for fluctuation in the engine is the vacuum from the inlet manifold is being upset.
Attention I suspect should be addressed to the Brake servo/pedal seal or gaitor.
I hope this clarifies your thoughts?
Please remember to rate my effort.

SOURCE: engine cutting out when idling or slowing down

Here is the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake

SOURCE: zigzag light on megane scenic dashboard comes on

this exact problem on a megane coupe is caused by a small air pipe that connects to a 2 inch wide black box that is located under the bonnet near the windscreen on the passangers side. the zigzag light indicates an electrical fault (in this case lack of compression and will affect your revs) if you find this pipe and it has snapped off. the reason for this may be that your engien is lose and moves. grab the engien with 2 hands and see if you can wobble it with allot of play. if so your engien mountings need replaceing. you may also experiance juddering in low gears

Did you put the new cambelt onto the cogs correctly, did you clamp the position of all the pulleys while you removed the old belt and put on the new one? if not, the cam belt will need re-aligning.

I just bought a 03 Renault Megane 1.6 (Petrol) and after 2 weeks the car developed a rattling sound from the engine bay. I had my car checked and the mechanic suspects the waterpump needs replacing along...


He's just trying to upsell. The pump should have been replaced with the belt last month. I always recommend that if one goes the other should be replaced, for this very reason. Unless the water pump trashed the belt I wouldn't put the timing kit back in it. One month old... There is nothing wrong with them. But again the pump could have ate the belt, check it, if it is chewed up or missing teeth replace the belt only. And he's just giving you a line of ----, for the alignment part.

Could be a whole gambit of problems

1) Check the HT system is good, contacts clean, good spark on the plugs.
2) Check the water temperature sensor.
3) Check the air filter isn't clogged.

1.5 diesel megane injection fault


The cheapest way to go is to change the fuel filters first and the air filter. Then I would change the crankshaft sensor.

You may have to bit the bullet , and have the fuel pump changed before the fuel injection pump. The fuel pump in the tank can be loosing pressure to the fuel injectoin pump.
I think the lesser cost is the fuel tank pump vs. the fuel injection pump.

The system runs of fuel and air. No spark like on a gas engine.

So the problem can only be lack of fuel or lack of air getting into the vehicle air induction. A restriction in fuel or air will make the engine run poorly.

I HAVE A 1998 DODGE STRATUS THAT I JUST REPLACED THE WATER PUMP ON WHEN I GOT I BACK IT WILL NOT IDLE BUT STARTS FINE RUNS FINE AND NO CHECK ENGINE LIGHT


Is the water pump driven by your cambelt?If yes then probably misplaced the positions when you replaced the water pump.
