Looks like through poor maintainence your engine has said Goodbye!
Pity as you could have kept it stable from a sensible regime!

My 2001 xj cherokee TD blows excessive smoke when the engine is under pressure.


Sounds like a broken oil ring. As far as the engine stalling, if your really low on oil the motor will shut down so as not to damage any bearings and other internal parts. Does the engine seem to be turning over faster and taking longer to start than usual and take a little longer to stop when you turn the engine off. If so you could have an issue with the compression rings in one or more cylinders. Do a compression test. If the #s are near where they should be it's likley oil rings. If the #s are low it's likley the compression rings. Either way if its one of those issues you'll need to overhaul your engine

RENAULT LAGUNA 2.2DCI 2003 MODEL EXCESS CRANKCASE PRESSURE


This is quite a common problem,especially with the 2.2 dci engine,although as usual Renault wont admit the problem.The reason your engine throws the oil after a run and not when stationary is this problem is caused by the turbo pressurising the crankcase.You can rev the engine all day but when theres no load on it then the turbo is not working at full pressure and all is well.
The cure for the problem is to fit a new rocker cover which incorporates part of the inlet manifold.The breathing system on these engines is complicated and the rocker cover has to handle both inlet gases AND exhaust gases and although no one can explain why a new cover cures it,I suspect the plastic the cover is made of is not robust enough and either becomes porous or warped and this allows gases into the crankcase,pressurising it and focing oil out either through the dipstick or it blows out the blanking plug in the timing cover.
It is not a massive job to replace the rocker cover as long as the injectors come out easily.If they dont then youre in real trouble.Good luck,Duncan.

Espace wont satrt with starter motor but starts on a bump or easy start!


sounds like the dreaded renault immobiliser ,in which case its dealer only as software encrypted.whats happening is the immobiliser is stopping it from starting when key is in start position cranking but it will go with a bump as starter motor key position not activated .try a wire from battery to small connector on starter motor .if it starts which i think it will then you know what to do ...old fashioned way with a push button.but are you getting prepared to lay the golden egg ???just in case
