Pinging in the engine is detonation caused fro wrong air fuel mixture for the accelerator opening and engine load. It is controlled by knock sensors that adjust the mixture in the CPU .IT has nothing to do with valve timing but may be affected by ignition timing . I would be having a compression test done to check for bent valves ( bent during the belt replacement). Have the cam timing re checked as it may be still out a bit.

SOURCE: how do i replace a offside front lower suspension arm ball joint

You need to get or rent a ball joint splitter, maybe $20? or so to buy.   Some parts stores (autozone does this, one reason i recommend them, but other stores may also) will rent you some tools for "free" when you buy parts there .. they take a big deposit in case  you bolt ... but give it all back for return of the tool in good condition.  
 It's easy ... if you know how to work on suspension .. if not, get a Haynes manual for your car from part store, amazon or haynes.com for around $20,  the blood and busted knuckles you save due to reading it will be worth the money ;~).

SOURCE: 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..

SOURCE: renault megane engine light flashing and car is juddering.

I have 2 meganes im working on at the moment both have the same problem. the electrical falt light is on coz the pipe has snapped (or come off) under the bonnet on the passangers side close to the window (theres a black box about 2 inch wide the pipe connects underneath). if I reconect the pipe and grab the engien with both hands it wobbles and the pipe pulls off. I suspect this is coz one (or all) the engien mountings are shagged. and this will be the cause of the juddering when driveing in first and second gears. solutions iv have come across for juddering involve changeing the coil pack but thats nothing to do with the problem my 2 cars have as one of them has new coils. they are 1.6 petrol, p reg and s reg

I just bought a 03 Renault Megane 1.6 (Petrol) and after 2 weeks the car developed a rattling sound from the engine bay. I had my car checked and the mechanic suspects the waterpump needs replacing along...


He's just trying to upsell. The pump should have been replaced with the belt last month. I always recommend that if one goes the other should be replaced, for this very reason. Unless the water pump trashed the belt I wouldn't put the timing kit back in it. One month old... There is nothing wrong with them. But again the pump could have ate the belt, check it, if it is chewed up or missing teeth replace the belt only. And he's just giving you a line of ----, for the alignment part.
