hi i have a problem with water not overheating just presherixing and blowing out from header tank changed water pump thermastat and rad cap this vehicle pulls and drives as it should its a 150 bhp does not miss a beat can anybody help please.
You emphasise that it's not overheating, just something is over-pressurising the system. The most likely candidate is a leaking cylinder head gasket or a crack in the cylinder head or cylinder block. Have your cooling system sniff tested ie they check the cooling system for any combustion products which would confirm the above. Why did you change the thermostat if there was no overheating?

Hi, my 2013 Renault master vans side door warning chime/beeping is driving me mad as keeps beeping non stop whilst driving even tho side door is firmly closed. Is there an easy way to turn sound off?
This is a common problem with Movanos and Masters that main dealers can't even seem to fix. Mine had the door contacts swapped twice and then Vauxhall took it again and had it for 3 days and still couldn't fix it!!!. Some people say it's because of over sensitive fibre optic cables in the wiring and slightly misaligned door runners & contact pads but whatever it is it's a major production flaw at the factory level. The only "temporary" way I've found to get around the problem is to put a strip of masking tape over the side door contacts every time I need to go out in the van. The warning alarm will still sound when you start driving but it will stop after 20 bleeps. The only issue after that is that you can't toggle through the display on the dash and "door open" is always displayed but it's a small price to pay to escape those mind bending beeps!! Please note: You won't be able to lock the doors while the tape is still over the contacts so remember to take it off whenever you want to lock the van. Doing this procedure every day was a serious hassle for the first few weeks but I've been doing it for 3 years now and it's just a daily routine. Hope that helps. steve from Staffordshire

Hi I have had my passenger side mirror replaced and the indicator on that side is now flashing fast. The body shop thinks it needs pairing with the ecu although this is the first time they have seen this. Apparently head lights sometimes require it but they have never seen it with a side repeater in a mirror. Any ideas anyone? Bob

hi i have a renault master dci 100 year 2005 . when driving over a pot hole or rough bumpy surface i can hear a knocking from the drivers side front wheel area ive taken the van to a local garage where they replaced a ball joint and it has just gone through its mot the van drives ok without any wobble in the steering it brakes ok when coming to a stop . i just cannot seem to locate where the noise is coming from . i would be grateful for any advice , kind regards jonny
Had the same problem with 2001 movano, turned out it was the large retaining nuts on the bottom wishbones. I think it was a 32mm socket, tightened them up and the noise was gone, Haz from Cornwall

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
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
