I own a '07 plate Renault Scenic 1.5 diesel. When the vehicle is used when cold, it has sufficient torque. Once the motor is at operating temperature, it has loss of power and is very sluggish. I've had diagnostics done but comes out clean; had the EGR Cooler and pipe replaced - still the same fault!! Fuel consumption good @ 54mi/gal. Any suggestions please??

Answer this question

Henk Crous, South Africa

Renault Scenic

I have a Renault Grand scenic 2005 petrol 2.0. My model was not listed in the selection boxes supplied. I have a problem of low battery and stop sign flashing up on certain speeds. Three speeds so far, one at 64, 90 and 109 km/h. There are no faults recorded in the logs. Renault South Africa and Renault Wonderboom have had the car for 4 weeks and they gave up. They replaced many components and price tag was large. Now I sit with a fault and I do not know if it is serious or not. The alternator have been checked, battery was replaced. Before this fault started, the scenic did have a problem of losing power while driving, cam was replaced and catalyst was removed. Power is moderate. Please help?

Hi, I have a Renault Scenic Dynamique 1.6 Auto. Any journey I make, whether it's a couple of miles or a hundred miles, the "Check Injection" light appears & the gearbox makes a shuddering noise. When I pull over and stop the car & take the Card Key out for a few seconds, I can re-start the car & the problem goes away but may or may not return again on the same journey. When I had a diagnostic Computer check it came back with " No Fault". Any help will be greatly appreciated
