Customer Question

1994 renault laguna stalls when warn and is very difficult to start again. I can start it by depressing the throtle to the floor and turning the key and keeping it turnrd untill the engine starts after much popping and banging, it can take up to 10 seconds or more before the engine catches and it then roars into life. It sounds like a fuel starvation problem. I have checked the air control valve and it did have oil in it which I have cleanrd out but the engine is still difficult to start when warm. It seems fine once the engine is hot. Any idea,s?. derek

I am finding it difficult getting a reply to you. I will try again. The Laguna is a 2.0 Litre RXE automatic. Engine prefix F3R. Mileage is a genuine 61000. The car has been regularly serviced and has just passed its MOT. There is an airbag warning on the dashboard. The car is an early Laguna and does not have a full diagnostic facility. Derek.
