Question about Renault Sport

1 Answer

I had my cam belt changed on a Renault Laguna by a garage, that was all fine, but after 28 mile the engine made a big noise and stop. I returned the car back to them and they found 8 of the valves are bent. They are saying the cam belt never slip, but oil built up around the valves caused it.Are they telling me fibs so I will pay.???????????

Nonsense. Take them to court. Belt slip is the only way this can happen.

Renault faults


Sounds like you might have a bad bearing or possibly a synchroniser. Fifth and Sixth gear wound more than likely share both especially a bearing. The engine noise could changed if it is a bearing and is loading the engine because a faulty bearing is making it work harder to pull it. One other thing that is possible is the engine is giving problems at that particular RPM but if it reaches the same RPM in other gears and doesn't make any noise then that has to be in the transmission..

Run fault codes as the light may also refer to the engine having a fault.. When the CPU finds a sensor that is outside set parameters it will put on a light to let you know that something is wrong. With Renault it may be the service light meaning check the engine and not service the engine.

New timing belt fitted 2000 miles ago by garage after cambelt had snaped causing damage to engine. garage fixed engine and cambelt. auxillary was not replaced and shredded causing damage to new cambelt...


NO.a garage doesnt even have to ask you what "extras"you want(aux belt)although if they asked you would you have agreed as "most garages are a ripoff trying to fit items that are not required...."the majority are not cowboys but get tarred with the same brush.

Renault laguna 1.9 valve change


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

Renault megane diesel black smoke


This could be as simple as the EGR (exhaust gas recycling) valve stuck open. This valve is supposed to open at a specific time, recycling the exhaust gasses back through the engine. If they stick open, the engine is not getting the correct air mixture to burn the fuel efficently, causing black smoke and lack of power. Have the garage remove and blank off this valve. If it runs ok, then a new EGR is needed.

Most cars with an A/T require the transmission to be hot, engine idling in park, to check the fluid level, but not all. On some you check it cold engine off. The problem with not knowing for sure is that overfilling the transmission can damage it. For that reason I suggest you get that owner's manual you are missing. Sources are dealer, salvage yard, e-bay, and many on-line sites. Search with the term, "Automobile Owner's Manual". Draining and changing the fluid can either be accomplished by removing the drain plug if it has one or by removing the return line from the radiator and with a helper starting the engine and allowing the trans pump to pump the fluid out one quart at a time. Pump out one quart in a clear container and then stop the engine and add a quart of fresh fluid. Keep doing this until you see clear clean fluid. This will actually remove all the fluid and is better than just draining the transmission pan, which only removes some of the fluid. You will also need to know the exact type fluid to add. A call to the dealer can get you this info.
