Ford transit 110 T280 I've back smoke on excellaration and loss of power on inclines; could it be the EGR valve at fault ; also have management warning light on.?


Needs piston rings. You have lost compression so you are losing power. The oil is getting pasty the worn rings and entering the combustion chamber which would explain the black smoke and loss of power.

Question? will a 52 number plate 2002 Renault Clio DCi 80 bhp Engine and Gearbox fit into the body shell of a 51 plate 2001 Renault Clio Dci 60 bhp ???


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 .

My Renault Kangoo injector pump gave up and I had to get a new one fitted. Now a mechanic friend has told me that no matter how well I wash out the tank, the fiings will go through the system and wreck...


Well my friend from my Experience with Renault kangoo all i can say is they all have that problem with that injection pump and If i were you I would go to a junkyard and get one from a wrecked car because it will cost you lot of $$$$ to get that pump. and if you get a pump just put it in i dont think that would matter because it will fail when it suppose to just like your old one. Good luck

1.9 dci no power and bluey grey smoke is coming from the exhaust


There are indeed traces of oil coming out of the exhaust. Blue smoke is burning oil. Grey or white smoke is usually coolant/water going through the engine. This can be caused by leaking head gaskets, valve guides depending on the engine, excessive blow-by, etc. Large amounts of oil are not good; and water is even worse. I would look at getting the head gasket replaced. The loss of power is because neither oil or water likes to burn, and once your engine clears it out, it probably runs ok for the rest of the day. Then I'm guessing the next morning, it comes back. This is an urgent fix, because prolonged leakage can damage the engine block, head, or both.

Renault clio clutch adjust


If the problem is just a clutch cable (clio 55 plate should be cable, not hidraulic), you can adjust or replace the clutch cable quit easily.

If the problem concerns instead the clutch disk, then you will need to put a car up on a bridge, empty the oil and fluid, and remove the clutch that is attached on the engine, on the right lower side.
This is usually not a job for home repair.
