The Renault Trafic is an extremely popular van, but as with any vehicle faults will develop with use. We have seen many faults on Renault Trafic vans, these are some of the more common:
Many owners have reported problems with starting Renault Trafic vans, amongst the most common of reasons for this is a failed fuel pump. Costs can vary wildly but on aged vans, in particular, this job can be a sign that the van needs to be sold due to repairs being beyond the economic value of the van.
In common with Vauxhall Vivaro and Nissan Primastar Vans there is a fundamental issue with seized injectors on Renault Trafic vans. The issue is so well known that it was featured on BBC’s Consumer Protection programme Watchdog in 2014. Due to water pooling in the engine bay, the injectors become seized. Becoming almost impossible to remove, the injectors cause considerable engine damage costs, with bills costing up to £5K to fix.
The RAC reports issues with engine management for the Renault Trafic van, which can prove very expensive to fix. Issues are suggested through the engine management light, which should disappear within 1-2 seconds of start-up. Engine management faults could include the camshaft sensor, issues with the ECU and also problems with the wiring loom.
As with Vauxhall Vivaro vans (which share similar mechanical attributes) there is a known problem with high-mileage alternators. Any alternator which has been used 80,000 miles needs to be replaced. An alternator is around £350 (before haggling!), but this is way cheaper than paying the consequential costs of alternator failure, (e.g. to the engine and drive belt).
