Sir, I recently bought one of your millenium products Renault Espace 3.0-V6-dci vin VFIJKOJDB 27956577,turbodiesel engine through a brother in Europe.
 On driving the car soon after delivery in Nigeria, I noticed the following:
!) The temperature rises astronomically within 5-10mins.and in 30-45mins.it gets to the red mark or bar. It throws out water excessively if the radiator lead is left open. I suspect a burnt top cylinder gasket.
2) The Airconditioning system is not working fine though the fan blows out air but 
does not cool. I also suspect leakage.
3) The handbook that came with this car is written in Deutch language. This makes it difficult for me to understand the directives on how to use virtually all the buttons in the car.
 Please, kindly help me find solution to these problems as I do not have a mechanic that is well informed about this model of car.
 Finally, I look forward to receiving a complete handbook written in English for my comprehension.
 Best Regards.

This 3.0 dCi IZUSU DMax engine ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DMAX_V6_engine ) is known for headgasket problems especially on early Espace IV models (attached document on disassembly and reassembly).

Sounds like the AC system needs refilling
