Common Renault Trafic Diesel Injector Faults
There was a known problem on earlier models where water used to run down the body of the vehicle into the engine compartment and then onto the aluminium injectors, causing them to cease in. As the water ingress on the injectors caused them to cease, this issue required a specialist removal job to remove and replace the damaged injectors.
This fault applies to the Trafic, Primastar and Vivario models.
