Renault traffic van that has no power until turbo starts to boost. Some times when i labour the engine at low revs the glow plug light will come on too? Any idea's?? Thanks


i've got trafic 100dci 2001 year-had poor exceleration upto 2000 revs then turbo cut in,also at speed-mainly uphill the power would start to pulse(like small jerks forward)until it ran out of steam-80ish,changed egr valve-didn't fix it! then tested air flow meter and found figures incorrect,so replaced,also tested the tubo rod(down the back of the engine -visible with air filter housing removed)this was very stiff,so used wd40 to clean then spray oil to lube and worked the rod backward and forward until it moved freely.put all back together and that was it-back to normal-hooray!! have to point out that the van will not rev past 3700 revs when it is loaded-it has a load sensor,unloaded or partly loaded it will rev to I think about 4100 revs(don't quote me on that though) do hope this will help whoever and God bless

disconnect the IAC, does the idle drop? if so the IAC iws most likely not the problem, to be sure remove it (2 8mm machine screws) and block it of with a peice of paper, if the idle drops the IAC is stuck on, if it doesn't drop you have a vacuum leak

Ca r will tick over no problem,but when you rev the engine it cuts out. i have changed fuel filter and used redex.


Check your fuel pump, fuel pressure regulator, EGR valve, IAC(Idle Air Control Valve) and your spark plugs and wires.

Evry time i come to a junction my car just cuts out nd the revs go up and down up and down on tick over so when i change gear the revs stay on for about 3 to 4 seconds then drop


Very common fault - idle air valve. There are two types, a 2 bolt or 3 bolt fixing. If you are in the UK give me your registration number and I will give you the part number.

Revs up and down at low revs


you need to clean or replace your idle air control valve(IAC). The IAC allows your engine to idle smoothly by opening and closing a valve that allows air flow to the engine that is monitored by the computer. The IAC get dirty causing it to stick and move slower than it should which causes the up and down idle

Hi,

Appreciate the "Ask Me".

The technically proper diagnostic procedure would be to have the car's computer scanned and the readings interpreted for errors. The error codes would determine the "probable" defects.

To my knowledge, there were at least three (3) Technical Service Bulletins for '97 Escorts:
1. July '98 - wiring harness/loom for power control module;
2. Oct '98 - change IAC valve with a new design/version; and
3. Oct '98 - change power control module (PCM).

All of the above directly affects idling (among others) and are strictly dealer repairs. If however you would prefer a DIY (do-it-yourself), then you would probably want to focus on:
a. locate the PCM and connect a grounding wire to pin 28;
b. remove, check/clean/replace the IAC valve and the throttle body/assy with special precautions. Pls reference this page for additional information;
c. or it maybe as simple as a return spring out of position for the idle level. I believe their are available aftermarket idle repair kits for Escorts that are comparable if not better.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
