    Default scenic PS leak

    The scenic is leaking steering fluid from the same spot again, that electrical sensor on the Pressure side.
    And its leaking precious dex11 !!!!

    What exactly does that sensor do (apart from give me grief) ???

    Hey Jo heres another Grief.
    Checking the oil in our scenic F4RC every week now. we are using about 500mls every month.
    Its not leaking from the sump area and there is no oil under the vehicle.
    No blue smoke at start up hot or cold and and no blue smoke after idling at the lights.
    Im using 10w40 100% synthetic as specified. any ideas

    I don't know what exactly that sensor does, except giving you grief, but a lot of Renault drivers complain about the same problem.

    That's interesting. I'm sure we changed that sensor when we had the car! Anyway what the sensor does is sense extra pressure ie steering at full lock and bumps up the engine idle speed to compensate so the pump can spin faster.

    That confirms my resolution to ditch the sensor if it so vulnerable to leaking.
    Might just cap the hole and cable tie the sensor in free air.
