Morphology How do you get threads like this moved into the Renault chassis forum? It'd be useful to have it there for future reference.

blade1889 Hi Geomar

Got the same engine, same year in my Burstner.
This is exactly what happened to me during my trip to France last year, identical issue.
Rang the local Renault dealer in Chesterfield, I quote..' sounds like the solenoid for the vacuum booster pipe on the Turbo is continuing to operate' It shouldn't give you a problem to get home, but you know if it packs in, as you will notice an immediate lack of power. End of quote.

Took it into the garage 3 weeks later & told me that ' a pipe' had come off ???, refitted it & no problems since.
Came away happy

Please note I am non-technical & the above my make absolute nonsense or not?
Dont shoot the messanger

On the R19 it was to stop heat soak "coking" (sic) the oil in the turbo bearing

Bottom of this page
It used to only apply to petrol turbos because they ran at higher temps but they probably apply it to most turbos now.

Stanner I shall have to check it out next time I use mine maybe I'm missing something or mine isn't very loud

henede Have no idea what it is but I do know that I can hear it on my 120 Master for some time after I turn off ignition.

Must be for something

Stanner Some Renaults (my old R19 TD for one) have a water-cooled turbo bearing and on the R19 a pump of some sort kept running after the engine stopped on that.
Perhaps it's the same on yours? I must admit I haven't heard anything like it on my 120 auto.
