This answer was rated:

hi i have a renault scenic 1500 dci 100 were do i start someone put petrol in and we got it flushed out then it was running ok for abit then it lost its power and stopped so we have changed deisel pump ,deisel filter and egr valve it dose start with a starter pack but its loud and smoke is coming out of the engine and it wont pull away please help


the missing piece is the injectors

as they too can be damaged when petrol is introduced

not from the fuel itself ,rather that they get swarf / metal particles pumped into them from the damaged pump

if you've replaced the pump due to petrol damage then the injectors have to be changed as well

they will also need 'coding' or programming to match your vehicle

sorry its not better news
