renaults got a really shakey rev needle, i have tried moving the cable a bit and re connecting it dashboard side.

Other Renaults / what is this ??

looks like a restrictor of some sort , its in the pipe from water pump to carb with arrow on it pointing towards carb. is this right ? the pipe never gets hot even though i have unblocked it and unblocked the carb - do i need a new one?  

Renault 5 GT Turbo / oil and coolant lights staying on
« on: 18:14, Mon 02 May 2011 »
for some reason the oil and coolant lights on the dash stay on after start up and only disappear when i accelerate, as soon as i drop the revs to idle they come on and increase revs they turn off. oil and coolant levels are fine
 no oil in water or vice versa.
(the car doesnt have the oil level sensor in the sump btw)

General Chat / wheel bearings
« on: 13:37, Fri 15 April 2011 »
hey guys , renaults up and running insured it for a year today! only thing thats annoying me is when i drive there is a noise from the back of the car, the faster you drive the faster the sound gets. does this mean the wheel bearings need replacing, if not what else could it be ?

Other Renaults / PLEASE HELP !!
« on: 15:08, Tue 12 April 2011 »
got the renault started this morning after all the work to replace headgasket but still running rough keeps cutting out more so when you suddenly brake sometimes? it hasnt got loads of fuel though..
there is defo some water in the oil but woud this be the reason there is a lot of smoke coming from the rear of the engine?
it just wont run smooth then cuts out what do i do ?
