Oil pump failure on a renault clio 1.2 , 8 valve - y reg .

Ive just bought a clio off a friend, he broke down and the AA guy said problem was the oil pump. My friend pulled the car over as soon as he realised he had a problem, what i would like to know is will the engine need to be reconditioned or will i get away with just replacing the oil pump. Any advise would be gratefully recieved.

Usually it requires only replacing the oil pump, unless the engine has sustained damage.

White smoke petrol 1.4 renault clio.not stem


White smoke: White smoke is caused by water and or antifreeze entering the cylinder, and the engine trying to burn it with the fuel. If white smoke is present, check to see if the proper amount of antifreeze is inside the radiator and the overflow bottle. Also check to see if antifreeze has contaminated the engine oil. You can look at the engine oil dipstick, or look at the under side of the engine oil filler cap. If the oil is contaminated with antifreeze, it will have the appearance of a chocolate milkshake. Do not start the engine if the oil is contaminated with antifreeze, as serious internal engine damage can result.



It is also possible to be a engine problem you should immediate visit a car service.

I have a renault clio 52 reg, the engine coolant keeps goin down


i have a clio, had same problem too. its the head gasket. when this breaks or cracks it allows water into parts of the engine it should not, and therefore the water starts to mix with the oil forming this 'light brown gunge' the problem is that when driving with a damaged head gasket you will damage the head of the engine too which is why this is reoccuring. your best bet is to take apart the engine, clean it out, buy a new head gasket and then get the head of your engine skimmed. this could solve the problem depending on how damaged your head is.
