SOURCE: 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.

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.

Battery light stays on and drains battery. Brand new battery, alternator and starter?


What is year--make--model?
If something wrong with wiring circuit, somewhere, replacing the part won't fix it.
Make sure charging system is working properly. To look up wiring diagram, I need vehicle info. The battery lite is on even with key out? Unplug alternator, see if light stays on, check the alternator wiring connector.

Overdrive switch is broken,brake is stuck,and car wont start, what can I do to fix it?


Well obviously if switch is broke, it'll need to be replaced.

Which brake is stuck? The E-brake or one of the brake calipers?


Check your cables over real good for corrosion from battery to starter. Just because lights work doesn't mean they're making good enough contact to spin the engine over.
Turn the lights on, then try to start the car, do the lights dim down or do they stay the same? if they dim real bad then it could be a bad ground, if they don't dim, it could be the starter or starter relay or a bad positive cable for the starter, you really need to get a volt meter and test for power.

Reset Mazda 5 engine light


Your engine light is on because something is out of parameters, ignoring it isn't wise. If you need to reset, often disconnecting the battery for a minute or two will do the trick, otherwise go to a nationwide automotive retailer and they will lend you the OBD tool to connect and delete the fault code. If the problem isn't fixed tho, the light will come back on soon thereafter

Check engine light stays on even after i disconected battery for 2 days


Your computer will store the fault code till it gets reset either by scan tool, or by operating the vehicle for at least 50 to 80 "good trips", trips that the ecm found no fault. It is possible there are other faults that the ecm has seen. OBDII systems cannot be erased like the older systems could be erased by the battery being disconnected.

EMS light on 2007 Jeta


EMS stands for "Engine Management System. Please read on.
Lots of areas are monitored by the engine management system, some of them are not apparent to anyone just driving the car, and usually they are not immediately terminal (which is why the light is yellow and not red). However they can get worse and should be checked as soon as possible. The following tells you a bit about engine management systems and how to read codes/ reset them.

The 'Engine Management Light' come on if the automatic monitoring system detects a malfunction in (usually) the powertrain components of the vehicle. If the fault has been fixed, then what you need to do to put the light out is:-

1 Disconnect the battery.
2 Reconnect the battery - this resets the engine management to its base configuration.At this stage, if you start the car up the Light will still be on and will stay on until the monitoring system has completed a series of tests some of which depend upon the car being operated under various normal driving conditions. Typically this will take about 20 minutes of normal driving. If all the tests are within spec then the light will go out and you will be back on the road!

If the fault persists then you have a specific problem. You will either need to take it to a dealer who will be able to read the codes and fix the problem (lots of dosh outlay I suspect). If you are reasonably confident you could buy a code reader to find out the problem for yourself. Gendan are currently selling theirs for £39.95 free pp which covers all post 2001 petrol and post 2004 diesel cars. Note if you reset using a code reader you still have to go through the 20 minute drive process before you are "back in business".

305 engine --The volts gage is dropping-- HELP


The gauge could be wrong,it could be defective,have the alternator checked,at the battery,it should read from 13.65 volts to 14.25 volts with the head lights on,and the ac blower on high,with the engine running.If the alternator is new,check for 12 volts at the back of the alternator with engine off,if there is not 12 volts on the large wire,on the alternator,then the circuit is broken somewhere.Just install a new wire,of equal or larger size.Leave the original wire on the alternator,and just add a new wire,larger would be better if possible,and run it from the alternator,to the positive side of the battery,it will fix the problem.

Car starts, runs, turns off then sometimes wont start??


how old is the battery? is it the origional? cause if you have to jump it then put a new battery in to solve the problem, most batterys say they are good for about 5 yrs to 8 yrs, depending, but if you jump it that brings life of the battery down... try putting a new battery in, and also check all around the vehicle, in the trunk look at the trunk light make sure it turns off when closed,all interior lights make sure they all shut off,check the glove box light to make sure it is shutting off ETC. cause even tho those are small bulbs if they stay on that will drain a battery quick over night... hope this helps.... GET the new battery that should fix your problem....

Check engine light


The check engine is a fault indicator, it will stay on until the fault is fixed and a certain number of miles driven to check that the fix was successful, it can' t be reset, you can erase the code with either a OBD 2 scan tool, or in some cases by disconnecting the battery for 1 hour, but if the fault is not fixed the light will come back on in short order. Very seldom do you fell anything different unless the fault is transmission related.
