1994 Renault 11 TXE Flash S 1.7 OHC LPG from Turkey


A badly built car that always has a water leak somewhere. I have had to change all the water pipes and the radiator, but it still leaks somewhere.

It likes to get a bit warm sometimes, so I have fitted an extra button to manually operate the fan just in case.

General Comments:

Not a bad car for its age, little spots of rust here and there, nothing serious.

Handles good, and accelerates good as well.

I use it with LPG. It does not work with petrol at the moment; it needs a carburetor adjustment.

Cheap to run except for some squeaks here and there. The heating problem is because of the miniature fan; it's too small for such a large engine.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

You might find the problem is with an air lock: old Renaults often have bleed valves within the system to release trapped air, which can make water changes a protracted affair.

In general French cars are not easy for maintenance, and the 11 is no exception.
