Took it to a garage five weeks ago for a timing belt and heater plugs, mechanic recommended also buying a new heater box which i purchased from renault, these were fitted and the car wouldnt start. mechanic believes heater box to be faulty and to blame for my car no longer starting, so i took the car to renault for diagnostics they said there box wasnt faulty and that a broken wire was a fault they replaced the heater box ... I took the car back to the garage the mechanic put a wire from the ignition to the jets whach has started the car but it wont go over 3000 revs .........

You may have to reset the ECM as it appears that a rpm limiter has been activated
take it back to the renault service center as the mechanic may not be fully up to date with the make

SOURCE: wont rev over 3000 rpms in any gear

Try disconect the battery from the car. Wait a minute and reconnect. This should reset the computer. This happened
to my moms Honda FR-V. The mechanic had seen it before.
Its worth a try.

SOURCE: The engine runs rough and periodically stalls upon

Try unplugging the mass air flow sensor or tapping on it when it is running and listen for idle changes.The mass air flow sensor is located on top of the throttle body and is a rectangle held in place by tamper proof torx screws.If you unplug this the engine light will come on but if it stays running while driving then you can be pretty certain this is causing a problem.

Thanks for update. That timing belt issue, was the first thing that came to mind, well let's hope they find problem. I'd make a point of showing the original mechanic the repair order/bill after to see what his response is, if it is the belt installed wrong. Keep me posted.

time for a new car.  You single handedly ruined this motor.  Don't waste anymore money on this car,  buy another car and do the prescribed maintenance as required. Think of this as an expensive lesson.

Overheating after timing belt change


Hi

If you took the car into this Garage , for just the timing belt, and then after there repair, you developed the overheating, then the problem should lie with them.

Did the car ever overheat before you took it too them ?

If not, go back and ask to see the Service Manager, and give him your grievance, that if they do not fix it, you will sue !

Good Luck !

P.S. Don´t forget to give me a rating please !

John.
