    Mine is doing exactly the same, i have problems from day one I have changed everything on the fuel side of the engine high pressure pump etc spent a fortune. Then after a month its cutting out just before the turbo kicks in the engine dies down, but not completely cutting out and then glow plug light comes on so while coasting, I turn key to the off position and then fire it up again then it drives normal. Then it will cut out when ever the van feels like it and I have to do he same. It also has realy bad turbo lag at times also.

This could be down to the petrol cap breaths through the key hole. boil it in a pan or use steradent tablet to clean it. if the petrol tank gets no air. it can cut out.

Had same problem with a 04 vivaro 150,000 miles,after a fuel filter change,the filter bowl has to be totally cleaned out when you change the filter,and filled with fresh diesel. otherwise crap gets into the pump ,injectors etc.but; having had pump cleaned and injectors serviced (massive hassle best avoided) had same problem and eventually(after pulling most of my hair out and having whipped the bejeezus out of the van with a prickly branch) found that the return nozzle into the tank was half blocked with crap,I cleaned that out and its been running pretty well for the last 30,000 miles.but it is playing up again now unplugging the air flow meter always seems to sort out any power loss issues.

I have a 2006 Caddy Van, 1.9tdi. When accelerating it will sometimes shudder, almost like a rev limiter, plus loses power / cuts out at low speeds.


I'd start with a thorough check of all your engine area harness connections making sure the multi plugs are properly home. Then any ground cables for a good clean connection. Has it had any work recently that could lead to a trapped part of the harness? I can't say whether the poor running is part of the electrical gremlins but as most engines have lots of electrical devices, who knows.

Renault trafic wont start...engine warning light flashing


The light and the word stop should be sending you a clear message . The engine hard starting and sluggish is also sending a message and if you do not heed the message and have the fault codes read and the problem fixed then the next message may be replace the engine or gear box . The light is there --not to be an annoyance ---but to inform you that something drastic is going wrong and it needs urgent attention.

Renault traffic van that has no power until turbo starts to boost. Some times when i labour the engine at low revs the glow plug light will come on too? Any idea's?? Thanks


i've got trafic 100dci 2001 year-had poor exceleration upto 2000 revs then turbo cut in,also at speed-mainly uphill the power would start to pulse(like small jerks forward)until it ran out of steam-80ish,changed egr valve-didn't fix it! then tested air flow meter and found figures incorrect,so replaced,also tested the tubo rod(down the back of the engine -visible with air filter housing removed)this was very stiff,so used wd40 to clean then spray oil to lube and worked the rod backward and forward until it moved freely.put all back together and that was it-back to normal-hooray!! have to point out that the van will not rev past 3700 revs when it is loaded-it has a load sensor,unloaded or partly loaded it will rev to I think about 4100 revs(don't quote me on that though) do hope this will help whoever and God bless

Renault Scenic blew up after long drive


yes see this all the time, turbo has failed the compressor side.
oil has been feed straight into your engine and lit, this acts as fuel and the faster the engine the more oil, no rev limiter either.
some times it can bend a conrod.
see if the car starts now. if so and runs happy (please note it will not rev up until warm) dont run for no more than 30 seconds.
what you are looking for is a lumpy engine and lots of white smoke. if so you have bent a con rod.
if not remove all turbo pipes and clean out oil, replace turbo.

Golf mk 4 gti turbo starts up but wont rev past 2000rpm


turbo is malfunctioning the turbo waste gate is not working take it to a shop right away, preferablly tow it so as not to damage the engine, if the exhaust gas's gets near the turbine bearings you will burn up the engine and the turbo cna explode like a hand granade and destrou your enging.

Location of crank sensor on renault megane 1.6, 2004


bit confused...the cranksensor will be on the gearbox housing the camsensor will be near the cams not the gearbox if the camsensor has packed up it wont start but if it packs up while driving the engine will run untill you stop it then it wont start,a cranksensor could cause the engine to stop at anytime if it fails..your problem could be the idle air control valve or a timing related issue..

LACK OF POWER


Does it smoke? Could possibly be sticking EGR valve. Remove and clean, or blank off and try running without it. If it runs better, this is your problem.
