If the cam belt popped you may not need to pull the head.. See if all you valves come to full height when you turn the cam with a wrench. If they do, you lucked out and none are bent. Change the timing belt and rotate the crank and cam together once everything is in time, and if you can, do a compression test. That will expose any bent vales. If you have compression. recheck your timing belt settings and button it up. Good Luck, Ned

Im looking for a tyre pressure sensor for my renault laguna 2033 plate but not sure what im looking for or how to fit one thank you


1. The tyre has to be removed to fit the tyre valve/ sensor unit to the wheel. . Tyre dealers will do this for you when you supply the sensor.

2. Any renault dealer parts department can sell you a new sensor.

3. The new sensor has to be programmed to the car's tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS).

3. Here is a list of information about the Renault Laguna tyre pressure sensors to assist you. The 2nd link below shows a picture of the tyre valve/sensor unit that fits to your wheel.

Timing belt failure is catastrophic on zero clearance engines. I would check the crank shaft sensor to see if it failed. To check the valves you need a cylinder leak down test kit.

you are right to be suspicious of the answer that you got, the only way for valves to get "bent" is for them to come into contact with the piston(s).

the lifters are run by the cam, which is run by the timing belt, (which was just "replaced" by the shop) Renault is not the easiest cars to work on, but if it went to this shop for 90k "service", then they should have had the procedures down pat. Sounds like some-one is trying to "CYA" (cover their "you know what")

How to replace a broken timing belt


Daewoo has interference engines in them, so if the timing belt broke while the engine was running, you will need to replace half of the valves which were bent when the pistons crashed into them when the cams stopped turning and the crank shaft continued to turn. Minimum of $700-1000.00 (usually more). If you do it all yourself and the valve guides are not damaged, still at least $400.00 worth of parts to fix. Pull plastic air dams around bottom of engine on front and right side . Support engine with jack. Drain antifreeze from engine and radiator. remove air filter housing and serpentine belt. remove front engine mount. remove cam belt cover. remove broken cam belt and check cam tensioner bearings and idler bearing as well. They are usually bad. Then remove spark plug cover. Remove valve cover. Remove intake from head. remove coil from head. remove heat shield from exhaust manifold then remove manifold from exhaust and from head. remove water hoses and connecting assemblies from side of head and rear of head. remove Cam shaft bearing caps loosening them all evenly so as not to bend cams. remove cams. remove head bolts. remove head. remove valve hydraulic lifters, compress valve springs and remove valve retainers and dissassemble valves. Clean everything very well. Make sure head is not damaged. Remove valve guide seals. install new valve guide seals, new valves. Seat valves with valve grinding compound. clean well. instal valves in reverse order of dissasembly. Before putting head on, make sure number 1 cylinder is at top dead center position. install head using proper torque of 18 ft # in a spiral application rotation from the center outward in a clockwise direction. Then do spiral rotation again tightening bolts each one-quarter turn. Repeat the tightening process two more times only turning the bolts one-quarter turn each time. Use new head bolts. They are designed to stretch in the process of installation and are not to be re-used. Align cams to proper orientation then bolt into place. do not overtorque cam bearing cap bolts. Less than 5 ft # of torque can stretch these bolts. Snug them then tighten them 90 degrees. Then tighten them another 90 degrees (quarter turn). Snug them all then go back and tighten all of them a quater turn, then go back and tighten all of them another quarter turn. Install the cam idler and tensioner and install the cam belt. then install the intake, exhaust and all other items in reverse order of assembly. Do not turn engine over unless you are sure you have the cam belt on with the crank shaft pulley aligned at top dead center and the intake and exhauste pulley marks aligned to their proper marks with the cam belt properly tensioned. You can't be even one tooth off. This must be right before you turn the engine over! Remove spark plugs and turn engine over by hand two rotation clockwise using a wrench on the center bolt of the crank shaft pulley. Check that the timing of cams is still perfect. If not, correct, retension cam belt, double check timing positions again then rotate engine two revolutions. Check cam timing positions again. The timing should not change! The engine should turn over relatively easily. If it feels like it doesn't want to turn, don't force it. You may have the timing off and be pressing a piston against a valve. If you are at this point, then you need to remove cam belt and unbolt cam shafts to release all tension on any of the valves. return the number one cylinder to top dead center position and then reinstall the cams and cam belt. Once it is assembled and in time, then reattatch the rest of the components that were removed in dissassembly. Do this in reverse order of dissassembly. then connect battery and fill radiator fluid. Start car.

HELP ? WERE IS THE TIMING MARKS ON A RENAULT


their isnt none ,you need a special kit to locate the timing ,where a bolt is removed in the bottom of the block just infront of the bell housing at the front of the engine and a special bolt put in that locates the crankshaft.Now their is no crankshaft keyway on this motor and the bottom pulley bolt has to be pulled up to 120lbs ,for this their is another piece that bolts to a starter motor bolt hole and locks the ring gear up .You should be able to buy ths kit in a auto factor its kit number ast 4390 .

How to fit cam belt to renault megane 1.5 dynamique diesel 2004


not difficult with the right equipment ,firstly you will need a special tool to lock the crankshaft in place ,then another special tool than aligns the tdc this goes through the cylinder block at the front right hand side by taking a bolt out in the block thats just in front of the bell housing .The special tools cost an arm and a leg trust me and then the pulley bolt has to be pulled up to 130lbs ,the bottom pulley does not have a keyway so without the right tools its very easy to let the engine turn and clout the valves which breaks the camshaft bearing caps with relative ease .the kit you need can be bought and its kit number AST4390 plus the locking pieces for the flywheel .This is not a weekend mechanic type job ,yes its easy with the right tools but even myself will slacken tensioner and remove the cam before i start so valves cannot catch when i turn engine over on starter with a big bar on the pulley nut ,then change the belt then with assistant holding a snap on heel bar in the flywheel ring gear whilst i hammer the bottom pulley bolt with the air wrench ,then use the 80cm knuckle bar and have a good grunch to make sure its really tight or it WILL TURN and the valves hit and break and imbed themselves in the pistons and smash the cam bearing caps .This is not a job for the faint hearted ,their is a timing mark on the flywheel looking from the top through a elongated hole and TDC is a longer tooth ,the inspection slot is about 3cms down from the crank sensor
