My Renault master bus has a problem. It stopped suddenly. We discovered oil mixed with the radiator water. So the mechanic changed the gasket. After the changed of the gasket he coupled it back. Since then the bus has refused to start on ignition. What we discovered was that fuel couldn't be supplied to the engine buy the Nussle. All effort failed to get this rectified. Kindly tell me the solution to this

Answers

I had a similar problem a few years ago' the mechanic said it was some kind of electric value to do with the fuel system that needed fixing or changing! It wouldn't let any fuel go to the engine ' Paul from Luton

Hi, I've just purchased a 63 plate van, the dash is flashing up showing side door is open. I've taken out the mechanism as suggested on another site & sprayed/ cleaned all contacts with WD40 but still the annoying beep exists, any ideas will be appreciated. Thanks

Answers

Of the contacts you are cleaning are brass, then they are for the central locking and not tor door sensor! The sensor is like a button and its black! Maybe it needs a new one! Paul from Luton

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

Answers

Maybe your wheels need balancing, can be done at a tyre shop! Or if it only happens when braking then discs could be warped! Paul from Luton

Could also be a badly bukeled wheel! Paul from Luton

my heat or won't get hot until I drive fast on motorways or up a hill. the blower motor only works on 2 and 4 which I will look at rheostat. van has done 250k just drove 500 miles all fine. just had a service and coolant change.

Answers

Probably air lock! Or air in system "There are two air release screws on one of your water hoses! Get engine up to tep then let it idle ' loosen screws but don't totally remove! And air should seap out then top up system, ps I sometimes sqweez the hoses a few times but everything is very hot so be careful Paul from Luton

Some people switch on heater and blower on high while doing this process when engine is hot! Paul from Luton
