    car is losing power especially going uphill. If I ease off accelerator then back on a few times can help. almost as if it's being starved of fuel then suddenly it kicks back in but acceleration is still poor. also poor mpg

Judering sounds like brakes ,but iam no doubt wrong it could be a valve allowing air into manifold not working ,loss of power is no doubt caused by the same component,best advice apart from burning it and giving the agincourt salute is take it too dealers as most renaults use a lot of software based programs ,some are readable and some are not ,new ones use encrypted software ,mechanics nightmare these cars ,another pos is the valve control on the throttle ,,,but it would be cheaper in the long run to use the dealer

Scenic megane 4 yr old, 13K miles, just had service,


Hi
faulty spark plugs is that the garage/dealer/mechanic said to you ?

Sounds like to me a ignition coil, and your car has 4 so this could possibly mean in the future more visits to the garage, to be sure I can suggest taking off the top engine cover and see if you have 4 grey ignition coils, manufactures name SAGEM, also now factory replaces with black coils.

Zigzag light on megane scenic dashboard comes on car revs high then low usually stalls then coming to a stop. 1998 renault megane scenic rt manual. thanks


this exact problem on a megane coupe is caused by a small air pipe that connects to a 2 inch wide black box that is located under the bonnet near the windscreen on the passangers side. the zigzag light indicates an electrical fault (in this case lack of compression and will affect your revs) if you find this pipe and it has snapped off. the reason for this may be that your engien is lose and moves. grab the engien with 2 hands and see if you can wobble it with allot of play. if so your engien mountings need replaceing. you may also experiance juddering in low gears

Renault megane engine light flashing and car is juddering.


I have 2 meganes im working on at the moment both have the same problem. the electrical falt light is on coz the pipe has snapped (or come off) under the bonnet on the passangers side close to the window (theres a black box about 2 inch wide the pipe connects underneath). if I reconect the pipe and grab the engien with both hands it wobbles and the pipe pulls off. I suspect this is coz one (or all) the engien mountings are shagged. and this will be the cause of the juddering when driveing in first and second gears. solutions iv have come across for juddering involve changeing the coil pack but thats nothing to do with the problem my 2 cars have as one of them has new coils. they are 1.6 petrol, p reg and s reg
