May I suggest that you contact a Renault service department and ask for this information. Even though you're doing the work yourself, they are usually pretty good about assisting, especially if you've been buying parts from them.
OK well it sounds like the good clear the codes trick that many people do before they sell there car. Nobody likes buying a car with a check light on so they clear the code and there good for a little more time before the cars sensor picks up the issue again. With my experience with cars is if you have a check light on then you have a emissions system issue. Since you just bought the car do your major tune up. Major tuneup meaning spark plugs, spark plug wires, cap and ignition rotor, pcv, air filter, oil change, fuel filter, and if you really have time and money transmission filter/oil, coolant, thermostat and last a fuel injection cleaner bottle, this will give you a good sense that your starting fresh. And if you still have them codes coming up your gonna need to buy a service tech manual and a multi volt meter to eliminate guessing on what your car situation.
First, why do you need to change just the head gasket? If your engine was run hot, you'll need a lot more than just a head gasket! Heads will need to be checked for warpage & cracks by a machine shop.
Second, this is a BIG job that you are fixing to jump on! This is a interference engine and if not done properly, you can very easily end up causing more harm than good! This site is not a good enough source to even begin to take on a project such as this. JMHO
If you intend on doing this job yourself, go buy a haynes or chiltons manual. You can pick 1 up at most any parts stores. Hope this helps you.
Oh, just a little more good advise, STOP red lining your engine! Over revving an engine is not good on the engine!!! ;)
You can buy them used from salvage yards.From what I have seen though,neither used or rebuilt do much good.A new transmission is always best.Good luck! Greg You can call a couple parts stores or a shop,they will give you a pretty decent ballpark figure.
verry cheap if you do it your self the pump is not that much and the job is something that can be done in your yard. this is not a very hard job and if you have even a little bit of automotive knowledge you can figure this one out.
the check engine light comes on whenever one or more of about 200 faults occur in the electronic engine or emmision controls, the only way to determine which system is causeing the problem is to have the system computer tested for the trouble code(s) that is stored when the light is turned on by the computer, which is known as the PCM
mhorton147: Good news if your car is no more than 3 years old or has 36,000 miles on it! KIA has been repairing and/or replacing CD players under warranty for problems where it won't play all the time, cd's get stuck, they eject and so on. the
Reference to the service bulletin is # KT2006032401
The bulletin was sent to the dealers: May 29th 2006
Even if your car has a little over the mileage, it's almost a sure bet they will buy the repair.If the service dept says no, go to the regional office an rattle their cage a little.
Good luck....Give the folks at Fixya some feedback if I'm doing anyone any good, I need some "ATTABOY's to build up the rep you know! All kidding aside, if you feel I've helped, the folks at Fixya would like to know.
Is it crunks but not start or it not even cranks.
If it first check spark plugs/wiring, distributor cap/rotor, colant temperature sensor. To figure it out first try to heat the car engine block with fan to see if it will affect anything. If no good check fuel lines too. If car won't crunk at all it can be starter or blown fuse.
For starter check the wiring comong to it, you can just move them a little, it might be just they are not tight enough. Let me know if you need more help
Yes, I've used them in the past, they are very good with their services and have little delays.They don't only ship cars, they ship industrial material , medical care equipment and other type of goods as well. As I see there are a lot of people talking about Logistica, again they are ok, they have very good and prompt services.
