Re: fault code 1 1 3
Try replacing the coil wire. This is an inexpensive option and will improve the consistency of current to the distributor. This wire goes from the center of the distributor cap to the ignition coil.
Best of luck! Michael Mittelsdorf

Been in accident and repaired? Check all sensors are plugged in and all earth wires have been reconnected. Does it splutter and die or just cut straight out? If just cut straight out it will be a sensor/computer fault.
Normally you would get a code for this but I would still check it out as if the fault is intermitent then you might not get a code.
Check these 3
1 EGR valve, exhaust gas recycler valve 2 air mass or MAF sensor 3 check your air pipes for any holes, poor seals or sucking in too much air, rev the engine while someone stands at the front, you can normally here any excess suction
all these could cause this fault.
Hope this helps, difficult to say without the code but these look likely. Regards Dan
My 05 1.6 renault megane struggles to start in th morning and once it does fire up you hav to rev it to ensure it wont cut out. The car then splutters and judders a bit till its warm then it tend to run ok. but keeps on switching off at the robots when i stop please what could it be
best bet is to go get any codes that may be stored in the PCM. This will take alot of the guess work out of diagnosing it. Or remove the spark plgs and replace them.. If you have 50,000 or more this could be the cause but a code may tell you which one is the issue
Your problem sounds as if the thermo sensor....which controls the air
fuel ratio when engine is cold....is faulty. It is a common fault on
This is not an expensive part, and takes only a short time to fit.
Change the filter as suggested and let me know if that takes care of it, also you should run a self test of the powertrain control module to see if it has a trouble codes, kragen and other stores like kragen do it for free.
