Renault DCI 420 Premium Engine Valve setting

I have recently purchased a Renault truck- 420 dci premium-2004 model of chassis no:VF622GVA000134169. The engine had failed and we are repairing it. Can anyone tell us what should be the valve clearance for the proper setting of engine.

All the bearings were worn !!!! had to buy a wole bearing kit, £170 . plus labour, lot cheaper than getting it reconditioned by specialists!!! they wanted £1000 for doing exactly what my mate has done for me. Hope this helps you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SOURCE: CAMBELT FAILURE ON A RENAULT MASTER DCI 120 2004

Definitely. If you're lucky then only the valves are damaged and that can be repaired by removing and overhauling the cylinder head. The water pump will and cambelt tensioners will also need to be replaced as they're relatively cheap and if they fail after repair the cambelt must be removed again. If you're unlucky then the piston crowns have been damaged or even the cylinder liners and this requires a complete engine rebuild. If only the valves are affected then the engine can usually be successfully repaired at a reasonable cost, but it's vital to get the head checked for cracks and flatness before reassembly as the stress on the combustion chambers and valve guides caused by a belt failure can warp or crack the head.

If time is money for you, then it may be cheaper to fit a good used engine. Note that there are no cheap "reconditioned" engines regardless of whatever worthless guarantees are offered. If you go for a reconditioned unit then if you're in the UK make sure that the engine supplier is a member of the Federation of Engine Remanufacturers (FER). Don't just rely on the logo on signs and stationery, actively check with the FER as some dodgy outfits have no qualms about claiming to ber members when they're not.

A good used engine will cost around £160 or so, make sure that you can hear the engine running before it's removed from the scrapped donor vehicle. It's cheap, but a risky choice and you'll need to add the cost of an immediate precautionary cambelt and water pump change.

A "reconditioned" engine means nothing. It might only have been degreased, repainted and had an oil and filter change. Recon is often a con.

A remanufactured engine will have been cleaned and then carefully tested before being largely or even completely dismantled. It's then rebuilt to precise tolerances using new or remanufactured parts. Expect to pay around half to two thirds of the cost of a brand new engine; they're not cheap but they are far cheaper than a new engine and will be supplied with a really worthwhile time/distance warranty.

I hope that you get your van fixed soon and that the damage isn't too serious. If my reply has helped then please return the favour by rating my answer.

SOURCE: can an egr valve on renault dci engine be cleaned

Yes, they can. Use brake cleaner or a similar solvent cleaner. The build up of carbon etc is what causes them to stick. Check that it is not broken first, as in the rod can be moved. If its jammed you will have to bite the bullet and buy a new one. Bad Times.

SOURCE: Question? will a 52 number

yes it will providing you have the donor next to you for any final bits that dont line up ,But i wouldnt advise you to do it under the EEC directive ,the certificate of homoglonation wouldnt be correct so therefore the vehicle cannot be tested for the MOT .Unless the appropiate`paperwork is issued by a technical engineer then the work carried out by a authorised garage with a VAT number ,then said vehicle inspected by the technical engineer to ensure the fitting is correct and to verify the engine number .Now under the europeon directives iam a qualified motor vehicle technician and a member of the appropiate body so iam a position to offer you the technical engineers report and draw up a project for this job for the garage and the minimum fee for this sort of work is 1000 euros.Now please remember that unless i sign the paperwork for this engine swop you cannot do the the job and legally use the said vehicle on the road or get the cars documents changed and without this you cannot MOT the vehicle or get insurance .I didnt do 6 yrs at college for nothing which i did when i lived in the UK the certificates were only good to hang in the privvy but here in spain they are worht a lot more and lets hope that the laws are changed soon in the Uk before i die anyway so i can open a office and charge what i like for a rubber stamp on a bit of paper just like spain .

I have a Renault 420 DCI Premium truck year 2002.I see THEFT DEFECT displayed on the panel.The engine cranks but does not start.What to do?


that would be the immobilizer at work and is stopping the engine from starting
contact the service dealer and ask how to reset the immobilizer
the immobilizer probably activated when you changed the batteries.

Renault Truck-420dci premium- Valve setting


think their hydraulic tappets on this and you squeeze them in to remove the oil then when engine is started they will readjust themselves ,now if engine hasnt had regular oil changes they become gummed up and will not adjust.if you have the other type which are shimmed then go for around 12 inlet and 15 exhaust this setting will suffice for nearly all engines except some older 60s GT engines with high lift cams like the ford capri or a stag .Best engine ever built for commercial use was the gardner ,better than the rolls royce used in the guy trucks with the cheften head ,ascot on the front .Alas the only thing we make in the UK nowdays of which we produce many and thats home grown religious nutters

The engine turns over but it won't start.


Unfortunately the F9Q (1.9 DCi) has 3 common faults, these are as follows

1. MAFS Mass air flow sensor - this will cause initially hesitation but eventually make the car really slow as the turbo waste gate will no longer open.

2. EGR - Exhaust gas recurcultion valve - a result fro the forementioned, the MAFS failure causes high carbon build up, this sticks to the valve and siezes it open, this causes an inlet pressure fault code

3. In-line fuel pump - this pump is a 3bar pressure pump that really plays up then gives up the ghost, hence *non starter* it could be hidden away somewhere on the chassis, you need to look for it, it could be mounted under an wheel arch etc. It is about 5" long and 2.5" diametre, it is inline so a pipe at either end and 2 wires going to it.

I bet my last dollar thats what is up. It fits in with what you said.

Let me know if UK I may help more

Merry Christmas

Renault laguna sports tourer 1.9 dci wont start


Try the relays under the bonnet fuse box 4 small black ones in a line, the first 2 from top cut of the fuel pump, and are a renowned cause of 85% of cranking without starting faults on the dci engine swap them over for the bottom 2 .
If it starts, buy 2 from Renault and fit
if the engine still fails to start the egr valve may be stuck closed starving the engine of air, its on the top of the engine at the air intake and has 3 bolts, remove it and clean it with carb cleaner then check its condition, if it appears ok, replace the cleaned one, if not you need a new one or the turbo will blow its seals and the engine will rev and burn on the engines own oil.
beyond this and your diy fixes are at an end without a obd2 code reader.
