Your oil pump may not be working. it is inside the pan. Under the engine.It has a filter and could be clogged with gunk. especially if the oil is not changed on a regular basis.

You have to check if you really glows comes to power that can show you the light on the dash that are working and maybe the relay of the glows does not work and you will pass voltage. Try a thick cable you put something in the battery positive and the other end touch the tip of the glow should produce a spark pquena holds about 20 or 25 seconds and give him star should work well. Thanks

Hi all,
I have a 2002 Renault Megane 1.6 Convertible and experienced exactly the same fault. Needed a team effort but we found a very easy quick fix to this problem. If you take the plastic cover off from under the gear shifter, you will notice a release button covered by a rubber cover. Pressing this release button allows the gear shifter to move from its locked/jammed position. (This is not the fix but it helps with the fix).
If you are fortunate enough to have a 2nd person available, have them poke their head under the bonnet to watch the Gearbox cable move....while you are shifting the gear shifter inside the vehicle. Your partner will see that a cable with a plastic locking device (right hand side of the engine cover) has popped off the shifter for the transmission. Move the shifter until you can physically put the plastic locking device back on the shifter mechanism and your all good to go. No need for that new gearbox that you might have been quoted on!! An easy fix that I am surprised no mechanically minded professional/body in the world has volunteered the solution to. I wonder why????

Good luck!

Every engine has a method for aligning the cam-to-crank for installing timing belts/chains.
On a dual-Camshaft Renault there will be a mark on each of the camshaft pulleys - the camshaft marks should be aligned with each other while the mark on the crank should point to a corresponding mark (arrow) on the engine block when the belt is installed.
I did a quick search for "renault timing belt marks" which produced a multitude of images and examples. One of those should be a close match for your engine. Good Luck !.

It's called an AC Compressor and is bracketed to the engine and driven by the belt from the crankshaft.
