Renault 5 GT Turbo / blocked hose
« on: 19:04, Sun 24 May 2009 »
i was giving my engine a look over today and noticed a little slit in a hose that goes from the water pump to the turbo, so i took it off to have a look and the slit hadnt gone all the way thru the hose, but the hose is completely blocked with dirt and shite.
what problems can this cause?
and how could this have happened?
 any help is much appreciated

Renault 5 GT Turbo / fitted new carb but....
« on: 17:26, Sun 03 May 2009 »
hey people,

iv fitted a second hand refurbished carb to my r5 yesterday, the old one was knacked and the car was running rich. As far as i know iv put all the pipes back the way there ment to be.
i started the car and played around with the idle screw and the mixture screw to get it somewhat right.
the car starts fine but when its ticking over it judders and splutters every 10seconds or somethin. when i drive the car it stil judders as if its misfiring.
any ideas why this is happening?

also is was checking all the fuses and came across this white relay (i think) thats just dangling there..

many thanks

rite guys,
 iv got a gtt in good nick with 52000 on the clock, standard engine and carb set up, except pipercross induction kit and bailey bv.
but resently iv noticed a tiny bit of oil around the dv!
could this probably be my turbo seals?

for a while iv been interested in purchasing a t25 .47.
with my engine being as standard as it is and a daily runner i need it to be reliable i dont rag the car round everywhere, only now and again when its needed :) . is there anything thats realy essential to do if i change to this turbo? uprated head gasket, seperate oil cooler ect?
