it has thrown up a hole variety of fault codes, egr valve (replaced) air flow meter (replaced) throttle peddle a anb b faults (however when the fault occours if you dip the clutch engine revs freely), injector heater circuits.
not sure what else to do
bought the car and drove home in the pouring rain, so did not notice lack of power.
next day noticed lack of power, and wiggly fault sign on dashboard display, spoke to people at work, one of my nurses husband is a vw mechanic an suggested egr valve.
replaced egr valve--- still fault persists, took o my local gagrage but cannot read renault fault codes
whent to another garage, paid to have fault codes read, came up with:
1826 heater circuit
180 pedal sensor A (gang1)
180 b pedal sensor B (gang 2)
1882 fuel pressure information
1815 inlet pressure boost circuit
1806 airflow sensor circuit
1814 egr recirc function (valve HAD been replaced at this point
asked mechanic where to go, and he suggested changing airflow sensor, so bought fro net. mechanic fitted, and reset codes, told me it was sying same faults, but had terrible probs in reading codes.
when new air flow sensor was fitted the car needed several minutes to warm up aafter starting before pressing the throttle peddle would increase engine reves, however i felt the replacement airflow meter was faulty, returned it and the replacement sent no longer has this problem
i have noticed that the boost pressure valve seems to have been disconnected, but when you look at it it seems to have been done professionally, since the pipes fom the outlet side have been plugged by a purpose made plug, not anything heath robinson.
I was told by my very first mechanic that this disconnection was not an issue, but welcome your opinion, if you feel i should reconnect please can you tell me, where the pipes run to/ from, the outlet side (bottom of valve would appear obious to connect to the blanked off pipe, but cannot see where the inlet (top of valve) pies run to from top of valve.
when the light is on the car revs freely up to near red line on tacho if you dip the clutch, spo cannot believe it is a throttle pedal fault. the car blows no smoke on start up, or acceleration, and has no exessive turbo whine
where do i go from here?
