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 Clio Service and Repairs

Over the past week we have been working on a Renault Clio which had quite a bit of work to be done. We started with a minor service on the car which required the oil and filter to be replaced with OEM parts.

The drivers window was also not working which required us to check and report what the fault was. After some testing of the power at the plug harness, it was found that there was weak power when the button is pressed. The burnt out window relay was replaced and after testing the issue was all gone.
