Renault 5 GT Turbo / Re: vac and breather hoses ??
« on: 02:05, Wed 29 June 2011 »
the 2 on the right of the lobster pot usually T into the dump valve vac and the actuator,the main big outlet on the boost hose can be blanked as it normally goes to the solenoid for the anti perc fan,as for the boost gauge there is an outlet at rear base of the carb you'd be best of using,only using my car as a reference though,others may be piped differently.

right people...bit of an update,

I took the lobster of and ran the car,it appeared there was a drip of fuel every second or so then the car would rev up,i took the carb top of and the idle jet was clear,i took the jet out of the side of the carb and cleaned that,i also gave the tiny tube that goes down into the carb a clean too and resealed the carb,when i started it the revs were still high but constant,i've lowered the idle and it seems steady so far,it still holds revs as you rev up but not for long but theres been a new mixture needle fitted too so the fuels gonna need setting up

so far so good,as for the temp gauge i swapped the wires round an its working LOL

I'll try a drive tomorrow and update but i'm optimistic so far!

its not so much rough its high and work come down,when its lowered it cuts out.

temp plugs are on,also when the revs are up and down temp overheat light on the temp gauge flickers?

carb and inlet manifold off and re-sealed...still the same,my temp gauge in the car has stopped working,could that be a factor?,i've removed anti perc fan and solenoid valve now too but that made no difference either?

still need help :cry:

it says in the haynes manual its the temp control for the anti perc fan on the side of the carb?,the wires from it went to the sensor on the turbo heatshield,still drawing a blank on the thing on the bulkhead though,i've google imaged engine bay pics and some dont even run it at all and the anti perc fan is removed???

still need help.

what is the round cylinder type device with foam around it that sits behind the carb on the bulkhaed?,It has a pipe going from it into the anti perc fan and 1 going to the induction pipe and whats its purpose,

also what is the 2 pin brass sensor on the side (passenger) of the carb for?.

could any of these cause my car to eratically idle from stalling to constant 1500rpm,the revs seem to hold high for a few seconds before dropping???

HELP please!

As you've probably guessed by all the wanteds i've put up i'm having trouble with my 5...long story short i've been having trouble with high HC's and also bad idling and crap brakes,all of which have now been traced back to a leaking brake servo cockin up the emissions and making the pedal crap.
Yesterday i  bought a used 1 as i bought a seal kit from renault that looked seriously alien,i mean i'll tackle most things but DAMN!!!,
came to fit it today thinking how hard can it be...4 nuts to secure...2 for the master cylinder and a pin for the pedal...easy i wrong was i!,2 nuts for the master cylinder but the pipes wont let it come far enough away to move the servo,fair enough i'll undo the brake pipes....cant do that without moving anti perc pipework,then theres the matter of how it comes out of the engine bay...the bottom by removing the shaft or the way i did it,from the top as follows :evil:
1.remove water/vac/boost hoses from carb
2.remove carb from manifold
3.remove inlet manifold
4.curse at he chronic backache as a result of stages 1-3
5.deep breath and carry on removing the servo from engine bay
6.curse more shoutin "i always win you b**tard" at the car in reverse from stages 5-1 enduring even more backache.
8.bleed brakes and take time to relax your back lying on the scabby bit of carpet that every 5 owner should have
9.start up and marvel while grinning cheshire cat like at the firm pedal and perfect idle
10 return to your home while having a quick glance back from your front door thinking "i love that car"

Anyway you may well be thinking what a load of pointles rambling (probably true) but i thought i'd share it with you all anyway.

Yours...sat at home with a brew :wink:

Renault 5 GT Turbo / servo help
« on: 21:56, Fri 10 June 2011 »
it appears that i have air leaking from around the rod that goes from the brake pedal to the servo on the bulkhead inside the car???

Is there any fix for this like a seal kit,i've read in haynes that there is an air filter type thing in there but my manual covers all so i'm not sure if it relates to the turbo

please shed some light for me peeps

had my car on Co machine today,

results are

Co at idle 0.23
Hc at idle 937

tried to adjust mixture using the screw on the side of the carb,when i riched it up the Co's stayed the same but Hc's went through the roof.reduced mixture and Hc's came down but Co stayed the same

ideas on why this is happening and what should i do to fix it?
