My boss has just brought a 08 plate master and noticed when driving it it judders down the road and it feels like it's towing a trailer , his mechanic thought it could be tyre pressure but it's not the case its just had a new engine put in , and due to this juddering motion there is a lot of play through the steering wheel

I've got an idling problem with my 2005 Renault master 120dci. At idle ( especially after a bit of a run ) the revs fluctuate up & down quite wildly & the engine sounds quite rough but then it drives ok again. Any ideas what's up with it & should I be worried? Many thanks, Viv

What container do you put power steering fluid in a Renault master van
Not being sarcastic.. but the power steering reservoir.. it will have a steering wheel logo on it.. probably on the cap. If you've a newer vehicle it may have electronic power steering.. and won't have a fluid res. R Evans from Caerphilly
Latest Masters do not have a Power Steering Reservoir, at least the 2015 one we have is bereft of one, electric power steering? Andy from Buckinghamshire

Just recently my van developed a knocking noise ( bit like a pneumatic road drill but obviously not as loud) its louder in second gear when you let of the accelerator. This week it can be heard in other gears but not as loud. The knocking noise seems to pick up or slow down in sync with speed anyone have any suggestions pls Cheers in advance Baz, Manchester
Does it seem to emanate from one side? Similar noise on mine turned out to be the wheel hub. Karl from Lancashire

Hi I have a 2.5 Renault master fwd starts and idles well runs well on minor roads but as soon as I'm driving on the motorways it runs ok till it reaches about 60-70 mph the. It stars to feel jumpy and make a popping noise for the front drivers side . the revs are around 2500 - 3000 rpm if I keep it below 60 it seems ok but as soon as I try to increase the speed it make the same noise and becomes jumpy again . It's been to the garage the drivers side drive shaft has been replaced with a new replacement driveshaft but it's made no difference as it still has the same problem . I would be very greatfull if any one could identify what the problem might be . Thanks for your time

Driving along and I had a breakdown, went to investigate and noticed there was clutch fluid leaking. I had no brakes at that point so could not continue. I have been advised that I need a cylinder sleeve. If this is the case do I also require a whole clutch system if the cylinder sleeve has to be replaced. The van is a Master MM35 DCI 125. Please advise.
Alan, what has been diagnosed is a clutch slave cylinder... that can be changed without a whole new clutch. The part should not cost a ransom and is not too difficult to change.. the hydraulic fluid will then need re-filling and bleeding.. and you're good to go. On flea bay the part ranges from 30-100 quid. However if your leaking fluid has managed to contaminate the clutch then you'd need a new clutch too.. not sure on the setup of Master if this could happen or not. R Evans from Caerphilly

I have a motor home based on a 2013 Renault master 3 van chassis, Semi auto quickshift robotic gear box I ran the vehicle last month and left it on the drive. Last week i went to start and the battery was dead. I have recharged the battery. Today i went to start. When i put the ignition key in there were no engine or gearbox check lights or gear box gear selection on the dash. I have the mileage indication and a van graphic lit. but no other check lights. When i try to turn over ( foot on the break) just a click and nothing else. Like the immobiliser has not reset. then the dash is blank. Lights work, other 12v electrics work (radio, rear view camera)

The van has been running fine with no excessive smoke. Today the van lost power followed by the EML and error message 'check emissions' and then 'Check injection'. The only thing that has been different the past few days is a very fine metallic rattle almost like a manifold cover vibrating. When I popped the bonnet there was some excess oil in the groove around the filler cap but it was quite watery and put this down to the wet weather? The van has been into he garage today who have explained that there was a small part snapped off a valve (sorry not a mechanic) possibly EGR valve so they tried 'blanking' it but the problem is still there After reading Google reports and forums could the tinny rattle I'd been hearing have been the exhaust manifold? And could this be the reason for the EML? The van still starts on the button and is not missing in any way while idling. Any help would be appreciated

Hello, Recently brought a pre registered jan 2015 master that had 24 delivery miles on the clock and had been sat on forecourt for the last 7/8 months. I have since covered 1800 miles and becoming increasingly concerned that the van is very underpowered. Pulling away from junctions and going up hill seems very flat? This master is the energy 135bhp twin turbo. My previous van a 120 bhp fiat Ducato was far more powerful in general. Renault had a quick test drive recently with mechanic finding no problems? I just wonder with the van stood for a long time perhaps one of the turbos is stuck? Any advice would be very welcome. Thanks Mark
