Question about Renault Le Car

1 Answer

Hello, my problem is that when i star it in the morning, it maintains very high RPM about 2000 if i leave it it will heat up and then it gets normal , but it takes a very long time . But if i push the gas pedal the RPMs start jumping from 1500 to 2200 , and some times when the engine is perfectly heated up the RPMs jump from 800 to 1200.

A faulty Exhaust Gas Recirculation valve is what causes the loss of power in a climb of a grade. Replace the EGR valve and you'll be fine.

High rpm while driving

Usually sign of a gear issue. It revs high when the gear is too low for the task. Should idle around 1000 rpm.
Onstar wont see this. Check the gear box. The garage wont charge you to look. Try an authorised dealer

2002 Wrangler 4.0 idles too high in park.

normal for an engine to start at elevated rpm and then die back as it takes a few seconds for the ECM doing it's sensor checks and idle back to the correct idle speed
check the idle rpm with an external rpm counter as most in dash units are inaccurate at rpm lower than 1000
as for the temperature
If you have a climate control module, it uses a mixture of heater and ac to maintain the temperature that you have set
so check it for operation

1995 mazda 626 overheating

this appears to be a common problem with 626s. Assuming you have done the normal things: checked the coolant & thermostat the big culprits are the electric fans not coming on & the radiator being too small to provide any leaway if it gets clogged. make sure there are no leaves etc blocking it but it probably is scale build up inside.

Also be sure to check the overflow tank for cracks - they do that a lot particularly if they over heat
