    Vehicle : Mk1 renault scenic... I know I know but it drives

    Trim : Basic

    Engine : 1.6 16v

    That's a cracking price mate. I paid more than that an mine needed a head gasket.

    A think just keep an eye out for usual vectra faults. Snapped springs. Bananna arms etc.

    Think scv is a problem on v6 but am sure people with more experience of them will be able to say otherwise

    Yours maybe ok as its the 177 model not the 184?bhp model (y30dt and not the z30dt)

    However, its not unknown for high pressure fuel pumps going tits up and are fairly expensive at around £2k a pop.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    There again given what you paid for it, might be the perfect car to see what you can make from the 3ltr
