Renault Laguna 2.2 diesel cutting out and difficulty starting
\015 I have a 2002 Laguna 2.2DCi Initial.\015\012\015\012It started having cutting out issues just after acceleration, total engine cut out, no spluttering. It would start again straight away and run fine until accelrating again then cut out.\015\012Now it also refuses to start. It will start with the aid of some easy start.\015\012The OBD showed fuel pressure in rail problem but when pipes are cracked open the fuel fires out.\015\012Strange thing though, after it has cut out and restarts, the PAS seems heavier than normal for quite a while, some 30 miles or so.\015\012New filters fitted, glo plugs work, no contamination in fuel, no leaks. HELP !\015\012It has done 127000 miles and has a full history showing a new pump at 60000 miles. I have been doing 3500 miles a month in it for the last 6 months.\015\012When running, it's perfect if a little rough at tick over.\015\012Anyone got any ideas please ?\015
If the ecu is under the battery tray(plastic unboltable), remove the tray and check for contamination around the plugs. commonish fault with the 1.9
For this heap of doogy doo their is only one solution without spending lots of cash and that is apart from burning it ,is to fit a in-line fuel pump with a relay these cars a renouwn for playing up like this .dealer sees you coming and yes you will lay the golden egg ...regardless trust me.fit a in-line pump in the fuel line to maintain pressure if this doesnt work then its not the fuel /injector pump as they will have you beleave and charge accordingly to remove and send to diesel overhaul shop or just fit a new one but it will be the ECU management system which is over a thousand euros and you cant fit it yourself as it has to be programmed and its encrypted software dealer only.Dealer wont tell you this untill they have changed everything eles at a cost of up too 1000 euros then say its a specialist renault problem and the car is then moved to another garage for a second opinion then the renault rep has to look then the answer is the ECU ,trust me on this one been their and have the teashirt for a customer and yes its a true story.
