    20100521_GTX_0003.JPGWe all love this mythical and popular car, because we sailed in one being childrens, because someone in the family had one or just because it always made us want it... because it's endearing, whatever we say.
    Its great success is certainly due to the fact that with a simple mechanics, with little or no electronics, it is easy to maintain by yourself without expensive tools, without forgetting that the parts are not expensive and always easy to find. Even today, for some homes, students and people with "little budget", it is a source of great comfort at a lower price: far from car loans and garage mechanics, which are becoming more and more inaccessible. The small engines models (the most common) are very robust and still consume very little, sometimes less than recent "equivalent" cars, which makes it by definition just as ecological, if not even more by the simple fact that we we always use it instead of buying new ones ... At the level of the official technical control, benefiting from its "seniority", it does not undergo the modern standards much too restrictive, the tranquility is assured.
    Today it is still an interesting car for everyday use, especially and clearly from an economic point of view.
    Collectors are also beginning to take an interest in this 30-year-old "granny": restoration, maintenance or refurbishment, repairs, etc ... make it possible to find "newer than new" models for the pleasure of the eyes and to see this French heritage thus safeguarded.
    We have created this community to bring together all those who are interested and who wish to take part in this adventure to preserve their Renault Super 5, whether by maintenance, repair or restoration: you will find in this community all useful information and tips on these topics.

    To be able to ask questions and share your interest, all you have to do is register and present yourself properly!
    You do not have to have a Super 5: an interest in auto mechanics is enough

Tant va la Five à l'eau

Bonjour à toutes et tous

Je ne sais si un sujet similaire existe, si c'est le cas merci de me donner le lien.

Hier, gros orage en ville. Coincée derrière un bus je me retrouve à l'arrêt dans une flaque d'eau qui paraissait un lac pour ma Five.

Arret net du moteur, voyants tous allumés.  Sauf les warning, embêtant. 

Grosse fumée ou vapeur 😁 sous le capot.

Jai redémarré de suite sans soucis.

Et jai fait mes 30km ensuite sans la moindre embûche.

Je suis absolument novice en voiture et mécanique mais j adore ma Five que j'espère garder longtemps.

Pouvez vous m expliquer ce qu'il s'est passé et que vérifier?

Merci beaucoup et bon week-end

pot d'échappement bouché par l'eau (?) Ca aurait ralenti assez la cadence du moteur pour le faire caler (?)
Sinon je ne vois pas, si la courroie avait glissé t'aurais entendu un crissement assez caractéristique et difficile de le louper... 


Dans une super 5 tant que l'entrée d'air n'est pas sous l'eau (ainsi que peut-être l'alternateur, le delco, etc...) il n'y a pas vraiment de quoi s'inquiéter... ;)

Probablement le bas du pot d'échappement intermédiaire a trempé un peu dans l'eau, ce qui a fait un grand coup de vapeur qui a calé le moteur  Mais rien de grave.

Sûrement pas grand chose, vérifie les sorties d’eau en bas des portes et des bas de caisse au cas où c’est rentré
