Question about 2000 Renault 181

1 Answer

Check injection sytem and engine has gone into limp mode ie 2k re

Renault dealer told me that the emmisions system has a self regenerating filter and that for every one hundred miles of urban driving you must do 20 miles at a continuous 50mph minimum for it to regenerate!!
also told that Renault had to buy back all Lagunas sold on Jersey and Gurnsey as there is a 35mph limit on the islands.
Driving 20 miles at 60mph did not clear the propblem, so the dealer is asking Renault technical services for the known resolution but which can only be done 3 times!!!
As my Laguna is a taxi this could be a major problem in the future

Maybe you are been fed a line and they do not know how to fix it unless it is a diesel renault
In which case you may have to check the extra tank that carries a special oil to burn off the carbon particulate
if that is the case find an accredited service center with experience on your make of car and talk with them
other than that sell it and get a better car

Check the EGR valve and pipes. Ensure that its very clean internally and the the ports are clear of carbon crude. You can use carb choke spray cleaner, cloth, old toothbrush and screw driver to get this device clean

the ECM is going into limp mode because a sensor is reporting a dangerous situation for either the engine or transmission

Soot filter and engine service light on, can I regenerate or will that cause harm to engine


These can be regenerated without harm to the engine. Volvo has a procedure for doing this. I have not seen it published for the general public. You should be able to politely ask a Volvo servicemen for the recommended procedures and they will generally help you out.

Can a toxic fume filter send a megane 2 into limp mode


Not directly, but the engine ECM and Transmission TCM are connected, so if the engine is running badly, this will effect on the transmission, and may confuse the TCM and make it go into limp mode.
Hope this helps
