Renault Megane RS265 Diagnosis Engine Performance

This Renault Megane RS265 was booked in with our workshop for diagnosis of an engine performance issue the client was experiencing with an intermittent engine light coming on.

To be able to diagnose the issue correctly, we first test drove the vehicle with the client to feel and see exactly what was happening and under what driving conditions. This helps us in the diagnosis of an issue as we can then attempt to replicate the driving style during the diagnostic process.

The car was then scanned to find faults and engine misfires. Multiple misfires were logged for cylinders 1, 2 and 4. To help with the misfires, new spark plugs and ignition coils were recommended. Once these were approved to be changed by the customer, the misfire faults were cleared from the memory with test drive required.

A test drive was carried out to find the initial client complaint had been rectified though found that when at operating temperature the coolant gauge wasn’t reading correctly.

Further vehicle diagnosis was carried out on the system, the coolant temperature sensor was replaced.

A final road test under driving conditions as demonstrated by the client took place with the sporty hatch performing as it should with all issues rectified.

Renault Megane not Selecting Gears

There was a Renault Megane that was brought into our workshop via tow truck as the gear lever was not selecting gears.

Renault-Megane-Wheels-Exhaust-RamSpeed-1We inspected the vehicle and found that the gear lever mechanism had an internal fault which was causing the shifter to not select the gears properly. The centre console was removed including the front exhaust to replace the gear lever and cables as required. Once this was done we replaced the parts and road tested to ensure the gears worked.

Renault Megane Inspecting Transmission Flaring

There was a Renault Megane that came into our workshop last week that had the transmission flaring up.

We test drove the vehicle to verify the transmission flare then scanned the transmission and engine control module for errors, which there were none. The Renault was then raised on the hoist to inspect the transmission and cabling which was found to be ok. A sample of the oil was taken from the transmission which was extremely dirty and was replaced as required. Once this was done we readapted the transmission as required and went on a final test drive.

These repairs helped to fix the gear flaring but it was noted the issue may return as the transmission wear may be too great. Also a whining noise was found from the engine bay which could be caused by the auxiliary belt and tensioner.
