Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1983 Renault R18is

  • Will it hurt my Renault R18i to drive with old spark plugs? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Spark plugs are small but mighty. The spark of electricity that the plug emits across a small gap creates the ignition for the combustion needed to start your car. Without that spark, your car won't start.
  • What does a puddle underneath my Renault R18i mean? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Renault R18i. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Renault R18i engine than others? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
