Re: Engine Problems 1.2turbo

Hello fellow 1.2 owners, I also was disappointed to find out my 1.2 Pulsar has the same appalling engine that was fitted to my previous car ( Renault Captur 1.2) , the Captur engine started to use oil at only about 1,500 miles or so and had numerous software updates to try and cure the oil consumpti...

Re: Stop/Start Fault

Hello,
As kt53 states there is a button to disable the stop/start , you have to press it every time you start the car, but it's worth the effort to disable the ridiculous start/stop.
I have attached a photo which I hope makes it clear which button to press.

All the best from Neale.

The speedo is approx 1 mph slower reading now with the tyre/wheel s...

Re: Rattles everywhere

I've had the windscreen replaced on mine as it wasn't fitted properly at the Factory , I still have a strange creaking /knocking noise which appears to come from the...

Hello,

Re: Rattles everywhere

Hello, Thanks for all the posts concerning my first impressions of my Pulsar , I've noticed I had a 'senior moment' and posted that my previous car was a Pulsar when in fact it was a Captur !! I stand by what I wrote in that the car moving a small amount is concerning at first , even now it adds som...

Tyre swop from 18" to 17"

Hello, I've recently bought a 1.2 Tekna Pulsar and I'm finding the ride is much too harsh on the poor roads around where I live, the tyres are the standard fitment 18" low profile 40, which I believe is the main cause of the poor ride. My question is -- I would like to fit 17" 205/60/17 tyres/wheels...
