Question about 2005 Renault 181
Display showing injection fault / Stop
All 1.5dci engines (Renault, Dacia and Nissan) use Delphi fuel injector systems. These particular Delphi fuel pumps are very sensitive to the quality of diesel you use (oil quality and level in the engine seems to be a factor, too). Once the pump is damaged internally (partial or total seizure) fine metal dust from the pump gets into the system and damages one or more injectors. If you act early (while the engine still runs) you may get away with replacing the pump and the fuel filter. However, once the dust spreads around, you need to replace the entire fuel system, including the fuel tank. To prevent this from happenning (to a fuel pump that is not yet damaged) you need to use quality diesel with low sulphur content (diesel made out of Russian or Venezuelan oil have usually high sulphur content), diesel additives (STP, Castrol, Wynns or similar) and change engine oil and oil filter at least every 15,000km/12months (Nissan uses this shorter service interval and their 1.5 dci cars seem to have much less problems with fuel injection systems).

I had the same problem 3 times till now. The problem is very common and is due to one of the 4 pencil spark plugs-alternators
