    What should max coolant and air intake temperature be on 182 ?

    I've ordered a new set of new Marellis and I'm going to replace all four. Fingers crossed that's the end of my woes !

    What should max coolant and air intake temperature be on 182 ?

    Well in essence, something is killing O2 sensors in my car. I opened another thread on it here. I suspect it may be a fuel injector but don't have unequivocal evidence of that. I'm trying to eliminate other things in the meantime. I noticed these figures here - which I felt weren't all that...

    What should max coolant and air intake temperature be on 182 ?

    Thanks for this guys... I'm trying to diagnose another problem and just wanted to 'eliminate these two from my inquiries'

    What should max coolant and air intake temperature be on 182 ?

    Interested to find out what the upper limit of the coolant and air intake temperatures should be on a Clio 182. I'm trying to home in on a problem with mine and just noticed that they were registering values of 99C for the coolant temperature and 66C for the air intake temperature after the car...

    My 182 is killing O2 Sensors

    It's killed two brand new genuine Renault [Bosch] sensors and a Bosch OEM one all positioned upstream. I decided to try a Denso sensor downstream and it's survived there. I've now moved it upstream [as it's the only working sensor I have] until I get the new ones.

    My 182 is killing O2 Sensors

    As I am right now, the current working Denso sensor positioned upstream is registering 0.4v when the ignition is on, but the engine's not running. This would indicate that the heater is getting power from the beginning. After starting [from cold] the voltage then moves to around about 0.9v...

    My 182 is killing O2 Sensors

    I've not checked where the rev limiter's kicking in but it seems to be idling [when warm] around 750-850. I'll need to get hold of a new multimeter and check the resistance on the injectors - the one I have at home here isn't good enough. No smoke from the exhaust - there does seem to be...

    My 182 is killing O2 Sensors

    Isn't there something you can do with scoping them - i.e. to see a trace profile of some sort. I'm not sure if I have the kit to do it though. Also, not sure how you can test for the things physically leaking. Speaking of injectors, does anyone have opinions on what to use for replacements...

    My 182 is killing O2 Sensors

    First off, thanks so much for this guys. That's a good question. I honestly don't know. I didn't remap it and there's no evidence in the documentation that the previous owner did. Is there any way I can find out from looking at the live data parameters ? This is my suspicion. Is there a...

    My 182 is killing O2 Sensors

    I've just ordered another O2 sensor... this is the third one that the car's had in under a 1,000 miles of driving :( Something's not right. The background. ----------------------- The car is a 2005 Renault Clio 182 with 78,000 miles. The car was throwing a P0130 error [upstream O2 sensor]...

    Replacing gearbox oil seal on 182

    I'm hopefully gonna get the chance to do the job next week... just wondering if you found out what size socket you used for this ? Thanks again for all your help here.

    PAS pump replacement

    Yep that's how mine sounded before replacement. In fact it was whining from the moment you started the engine and never stopped. It got a lot worse when turning lock to lock. It doesn't do that now... there's just a whine on starting for about 30s and then it disappears.

    PAS pump replacement

    Ya that's a point. I've not gassed the system since I've had everything to bits, so will try that when I have.

    PAS pump replacement

    I replaced a ton of stuff including the timing belt, dephaser, auxiliary belt, aux belt pulleys and tensioner, all the oil seals, sump gasket, exhaust and inlet manifold gaskets, clutch etc... etc... all with genuine Renault parts. Prior to that the alternator and water pump were replaced.

    Replacing gearbox oil seal on 182

    That would be brilliant... ya whatever number's on the outside of the socket would be great. I'm always happy to buy new tools... you never know when you may need them. Sorry for all the questions etc... here. Hopefully our conversation will be helpful to somebody doing this job in the future.

    PAS pump replacement

    Thanks guys... I did the job a few weeks ago [along with a ton of other stuff as I took the engine and gearbox out of the car] and used this one off eBay. It's probably the one @MrBlonde used ? Seems alright so far, although I have to say there's still a whine when I start the car, but it...

    Replacing gearbox oil seal on 182

    That's brilliant... can you let me know the size of the socket... just want to check that I have it. I don't have very many large sockets unfortunately - all my stuff's small from the kart racing.

    Replacing gearbox oil seal on 182

    That's really helpful. So I'm looking at having it so that some of the blue line is showing, right ? I guess I need an electrical tape reel larger than the red bore and just slightly smaller than the blue bore. Do you normally use the electrical tape, or if a socket, what size ? Thanks again.

    Replacing gearbox oil seal on 182

    Ya that would be great if you could post a photo... again, thanks so much for all your help.

    Replacing gearbox oil seal on 182

    Thanks so much for this. I put some oil on the lip of the seal and used the biggest socket I had. It wasn't big enough though, it wasn't proud of the edge of the seal if you know what I mean. The problem is the seal doesn't have a stop to be hammered in to... so it can go too far in. I like...

    Replacing gearbox oil seal on 182

    I did a lot of work on my 182 a few weeks ago, including replacing the offside [driver's side] oil seal on the gearbox. That's the one where the RHS driveshaft enters the box. I felt at the time I didn't get it in correctly... and sure enough I've now been proven correct :( Does anyone have...

    Air conditioning oil for Clio RS 182

    Ya they do, but my engine will be on a bench in the next 48 hours so that won't be an option. My friend has all the gassing kit, we just need to know what lubricant to use.

    Air conditioning oil for Clio RS 182

    Would anyone happen to have details of the oil used in the air conditioning system of the Clio RS 182. I'm looking to replace it.

    182 front wiper mechanism failed a second time

    182 front wiper mechanism failed a second time

    That's a really interesting piece of information... I'm going to take the mechanism out tomorrow and check to see. It does feel like something's snapped or come off though because the driver side feels like it isn't connected to anything [I can move it around with my hand] while the passenger...
