    1999 Renault Megane 1.4 16 valve. Exact same problems as above. Was it your timing belt and, if so, was there any damage done to the valves?


  • Anonymous Apr 06, 2009

    Hit the same problem yesterday with my 99 Laguna. Having talked to 4 mechanics, 2 solutions

    1. Get the mechanic open up the Cylinder and the engine, try checkin the cam belt, timing belts and valves and see what needs replacement. Now the estimation i got for this check is £200 + VAT. If you are lucky you might get it cheaper. Once some or all of those parts need replacement, this hikes the fees to anything upto £1000

    2. Get an used engine. Prices vary from £250 to £500 plus engine refit labour of around £100.



    I am thinking of the second option. I did manage to get a few quotes from some sites. Planning to do the Engine Code match tomorrow before buying this.

Sounds like your timing belt has snapped, allowing the engine to tutrn over but the belt is not turning the vales, hence no start

What is the brown sludge in my water coolant and why has my engine lost power on my 05 Renault megane coupe cabriolet


Sludge is engine oil. Add lost power and = you have blown head gasket or cracked head. Sorry to convey such bad news.

Renault megane tourer sport 1.6 2004 - when i start the car either in the morning or when it has been stood a short while, it makes a loud noise, like a transit van or a tractor. it is only for a few


it looks like u have bad spark plugs, mainly when the car is cold .this noise seems to be backfire coming thru air fllter casing or the accessory belts. also check your engine oil quality-replace if necessary
