Renault 5 GT Turbo / strange cutting out.
« on: 19:59, Fri 14 June 2013 »
hi guys im totally baffled with my car now. it seems to idle ok but when i rev it it wants to cut out and when i try to drive it its really lumpy. the car has been sat in my barn over the last few years and i have given it a full engine rebuild and replaced most things. the carb has had a full refurb kit on it. i have replaced all vacuum and fuel pipes. I have checked for any air leaks i can and all seems good. i have cleaned the idle jet out numerous times and drained the carb bowl. i have also checked the mixture screw is set right and the end still in place. i have noticed when the car is idling the dump valve diaphragm opens and closes is this normal? also when its idling with the carb top off the carb seems to have a  crackling noise. is this normal? the pump jet seems to be squirting fuel down the venturi well through the brass nozzel. anyone got any ideas as its totally baffling me. i have just put 20 pounds worth of fuel in it from asda could this be the problem? as a few people have told me asda fuel is rubbish. appreciate any help thanks

Renault 5 GT Turbo / central locking relay
« on: 21:53, Wed 05 June 2013 »
hi guys could anyone tell me what type of relay the central locking relay is on the gt turbo? and also where would the best place be to get one? dont know what to ask for at local motor factors when i go and not clued up on electrics. ive got an intermittent fault with my central locking sometimes it works and sometimes it doesnt. with both the alarm fob and also the  interior central locking switch?? i have tried a new central locking switch and the fault still occurs. so eliminating the relay and then if its not that has to be a wiring fault. appreciate any help thanks

Renault 5 GT Turbo / meta m96 alarm
« on: 15:38, Sun 02 December 2012 »
Hi ive finally got round to spending some time on my 5 after it being stood in my garage for the past year.  I have a problem with my alarm and central locking. The key fob wont lock or unlock the car.The door lock switch in the car still works. I have changed the batteries in the fob but still nothing happens .I have found the control box for the alarm which shows its a meta m96 system which i was told is the original alarm system for the car from factory. Im not sure if the fob is at fault or the control unit as i have found that mice have been nesting in my heaters in the car and maybe they could have chewed a wire or im scratching my head at what it could be. i have searched on the internet about meta alarms and found that my alarm with the round key fob could be coded with an 8 or 16 digit code but i dont have a code so stuck there. does anyone know if anyone can supply a replacement control unit and matching fob ? or if the control unit is unplugged does it all need coding again? also does anyone have a wiring diagram for the meta m96 e alarm? appreciate any help thanks

Renault 5 GT Turbo / absolutely baffled!!
« on: 22:05, Thu 16 August 2012 »
hi my friends renault 5 gt started playing up the other day. he took it on the backroads and when boosting hard the car cut out. now the car idles irratically sounding like its not getting enough fuel and struggling. the car wont idle untill very warm and then when you blip the throttle it just cuts out but will then start again straight after and idle. we have tried everything we can think off and now absolutely baffled! we have cleaned alll carb out done new fuel filter, cleaned all jets, rebuilt carb with carb kit,set new  mixture screw, new plugs, checked for air leaks everywhere, all new vaccum pipes and nothing makes any difference! we fitted a different (secondhand) turbo which had no play the other week after his was knackerd and changed oil and filter. the car ran perfect for a week and then all of a sudden its playing up. anyone got any ideas what this can be? we compression test it and one cylinder was about a bar less than the others could it be head gasket or piston ring failure? causing it to run like this?it deffinately sounds like its fuel and not ignition appreciate any help thanks

Renault 5 GT Turbo / Help needed, breather sytem
« on: 16:41, Sat 21 July 2012 »
Hi been messing with my mates car today got it running right for him, but he mentioned it was loosing water when he came. we have looked for leaks but no sign. he drove 40 minutes on the motorway to my house and it lost about half of the water in the header tank. There was no real signs of headgasket gone, he has fit a new alloy radiator because thought it was the old radiator leaking but no today he wanted the cup breather mod doing on his car to see if it helped the running of it. we blanked of the one way valve in manifold and did away with the breather hoses to the telephone hose and fit in an oil catch tank and oil breather filter. started the car and it puffed out white smoke, so we reverted back to the original setup and one way valve and theres no white smoke! we thought it might have been because one way valve removed it would just be pumping out all the crap in the system. any ideas? could the cup breather mod be showing better signs of the head gasket going than the original breather setup would? the car doesnt over heat, fan kicks in when it should! theres no oil in the water and no bubbling in the header tank.and the heaters get hot. so no real signs of the headgasket going other than the white smoke when the cup breather mod is in place! totally baffled! appreciate any help thanks

Renault 5 GT Turbo / Re: tuning the gt turbo

hi thanks alot for the reply, i have the aem wideband but its welded into my exhaust so cant use it on his car. ive had a mess with the carb today got it running 100 percent better cleaned all jets set mixture and idle. the engine sounds alot smoother.ive replaced all the vaccum hoses and checked for leaks. only place i could kind of find a leak was on the forge dumpvalve when spraying carb cleaner on it hunts abit but think this is because its not pulled shut on idle. the diaphragm seems good, wonder if the spring could be too strong holding it open. its the green spring. only problem were having now is when the lad stalls the car it wont start for ages. loads of easy start is needed. we was stuck on a hill aswell though could this be the floats in the carb not level? we are going to rebuild the carb next weekend so will give it a good look over and sort drilling second stage and get a bigger acc jet. then it will be going on the rolling road so will try and see what it needs but sure old man at mini sport will sort it!

hi so if i drill the second stage and buy a 1.1 air corrector thats enough? does main jet not need changing? is there a main jet worth buying if it needs a bigger jet once its put on the rollers with afr up exhaust? where can i get a 1.1 air corrector as ive only seen 0.9 fron ktec. appreciate the help thanks

hi mate he wants to make sure everything is good and kept an eye on for getting more power out of it! in the future he wants more power but just wants to do the little mods now to get the most out of it. the engine is totally standard so was going to wind the boost up to 15 psi just on the actuator rod and do away with the adjustable boost controller! would he need something like a 140 jet and a 0.90 air corrector or am i miles out? can you think of anything else that would give abit more power? hes getting the turbo elbow bored out and has a full stainless exhaust already. appreciate the help!
