Inside Line: Corteco

Renault Clio 2005 onward

Valve Stem Seals

The engine heating and cooling characteristics on the Renault engine can turn stem seals brittle and cause oil leaks into the combustion chamber. If there is a slight bit of smoke on ignition is confirmed and later diagnosed as a valve stem seal problem, the Corteco 19036105 Valve Stem Seal kit is the available off-the-shelf solution.

Engine Plug Kit

Standard times for oil services have been unnecessarily extended by oil sump plug removal and re-tightening problems on this model. Corteco says re-threading is an inefficient use of the skilled mechanic’s time that takes risks with the integrity of the engine and the garage’s reputation.

The Corteco Sump Plug Merchandiser includes Sump Kit No. 220100s, which is a perfect low cost solution at a price that makes it worthwhile to ‘fit ‘new’ plugs at every service.
