Question about 2003 Renault Sportwagon
Hi just fitted new injectors because had a msg on screen showing 'injection fault' and the renault dealers` diagnostic test shown the injectors were leaking. got that sorted and the msg still comes up on screen when driving. dealer said it is the fuel injection pump. because it is an expensive thing to change, didnt fix that problem. yesterday when drove on a long journey, the engine stopped at about 70 mph and wouldnt start. guy from rac managed to clean the crankshaft sensor and terminals and the car started. although started and i managed to drive another 200 miles i couldnt go more than 50 mph without it showing the fault again. anyone knows if this can be something else than the fuel injection pump? (preferably something cheaper ;P)
Were is crankshaft sensor

The cheapest way to go is to change the fuel filters first and the air filter. Then I would change the crankshaft sensor.
You may have to bit the bullet , and have the fuel pump changed before the fuel injection pump. The fuel pump in the tank can be loosing pressure to the fuel injectoin pump.
I think the lesser cost is the fuel tank pump vs. the fuel injection pump.
The system runs of fuel and air. No spark like on a gas engine.
So the problem can only be lack of fuel or lack of air getting into the vehicle air induction. A restriction in fuel or air will make the engine run poorly.

Diesel leak oily residue over back of car and back window also showing injection fault renault megane 04

05 Megane Sport Tourer 103,000 miles
I had the injection fault light coming on when putting foot down to overtake. Chnaged Air filter, Fuel filter, and no difference.
Oil, Filter, cambelt all changed at correct intervals.
I put some injector cleaner in with the petrol and the fault got worse coming on when starting and resulted in six presses of the button to get started.
Ran the car through Xmas and took to renault who put it on the diagnostics and found the Leak Down test failed on two injectors.
N0. 2 and No. 3 cylinders.
One rplacement injector is £186 and fitting both is 1.5 hours labour.
The diagnostics was £47 which I think was fair as pecialised equipent is reqired and it took 1.5 hours.
After 103,000 miles I guess this little 1.5 diesel has don well and the new injectors should give it a new lease of life.
Best point 62mpg. Worst point 3 window regulators on front windows (Under Warranty) one has gone again but the window is up so I can not bring myself to pay £200.
