"Carried out a full system test using CLIP. Traced a fault to the turbo pressure regulation circuit. Carried out the corrective service checks and found the vacuum pipe to the turbo wastegate split. Replaced, reset system, N/F/F"
This warningnmessage has just flashed up. Picked the car up 5 days ago and it seems very sluggish. The message has gone off now but have booked it in to be looked at anyway. Renault dealer mentioned plugs but I will let them know about this useful info. Anyone know why the warning would have gone off?
If it's glowplugs, the message will appear after starting from cold. If you let the engine warm, pull over, switch off and restart, the message will disappear.
When mine went, the engine ran fine, so if it feels sluggish you may have another problem. Bear in mind, as Screwloose says, 'check injection' is a generic "There's something wrong with me" message. It could be any number of things causing it.
If you've ever changed a set of spark plugs, you change glowplugs on this engine. Remove each one, test it by connecting it to the battery, and refit/replace as appropriate. The supply wire is just a push fit with no stupid little 8mm nut to lose - they even put a plastic pull handle on the terminal - and access is very straightforward once you pull off the plastic engine cover.
I had all four out, tested, and refitted, and the engine running again in 30 mins. Far easier than on any other diesel car I've owned.
The car has come back after a day at renault dealer with a new lease of life. They said a hose had come loose and had re-attached. Its like a different car and is now running like a dream. Thanks for the comment. I will be sure to share any future experience of this car.
