Our Renault Scenic increasingly...

Our Renault Scenic increasingly has a problem starting. Turns over but will not catch. I see this problem represented over all the forums so obviously a common problem. Happens almost every time now and usually starts after a few goes but today in danger of flooding engine and have had to leave it. Was getting to the point where it would not even turn over...

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? How old is the battery?

103,000 approx. i dont think the battery is very old... we have owned it for approx 4 years and the problem is getting worse...

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Yes, or find a solution. Though we have no knowledge of cars and not the money to take it to the shop right now...

Mechanic's Assistant: Great! What have you tried so far?

Well not a great deal, there seem to be a variety of reasons offered out there. Fuel pump problems, sensor blocked, immobiliser, none of which appear to really get to the nub of it...

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Renault Mechanic should know about your Renault?

It has a number of issues and feels like its on its last legs. Increasingly when driving it it has a grinding vibration, which gets increasingly loud with more speed.... but I dont feel these issues are connected as the non start problem has always been there to a greater or lesser degree...

I have seen on the forums that this has not always solved the problem. Anything else you recommend?

If you have a crank and non start it could be ignition coils starting to fail which are also very common but in almost all cases its the crank sensor
