Dear all,

Display started showing CHECK INJECTION fault at the weekend then started to struggle with ignition when cold. Fine when warm starting and also drives fine.

Booked it into a garage but really strugggled to start it that day -after maybe 8 or more efforts the battery ran down, so needed to bel jump-started.

The Renault Dealership in Luxembourg (we moved here 3 months back) diagnosed it as needing 4 new INJECTORS (full set) and bits that go with them for 1900 Euros !

The car cost us £3300 just 3 years back so unless I can get a better quote over the border or a better diagnosis then may even have to give up on the car.

Have since seen a forum which mentioned this fault and solving it with a set of glowplugs - I don't know much about cars - are they conning me?

Any help much appreciated as I left it at the dealer until I can find somewhere else to take it or make some decision. My wife is also due to give birth this week!

Thanks,

John (formerly from cheap Derbyshire, now expensive Luxembourg)

I certainly would start by checking glow plugs first. if ok Do a leak off test of injectors

you most likely will find one of the injectors has a leak off a most common fault on these 1.5 renault dci's which cause cold start problems. I think your garage is clutchimg at straws looking to replace all four injectors. Just ask your your garage have they done

a leak off test Checked operation of glow plugs starter operation cold Battery check

Its common and good practice to replace all four injectors but the price is very high look on ebay.de or try and find an injector firm that reconditions them more likely to find in Germany than Luxembourg.

Had a look on German ebay a few firms selling them Artikelnummer: 230516530932 around a €130 to 190 each another one selling new parts Artikelnummer: 230553390593
