Question about Renault Cars & Trucks
My Renault Grand Scenic 1.6 ('06 plate) has just passed it's MOT. The day before it went in the engine light came on and the message Check Ignition came on, followed shortly after with Check Emissions. The car is firing on three cylinders. Aha, I thought it was an ignition coil and had it tested when it went in for the MOT but apparently it isn't. The garage fitted new plug and they are all firing with a strong spark. First thing in the morning the car runs fine but after a while - presumably when it gets hot - the misfiring starts again and the car is juddering. I don't want to take it to the local Renault dealer (Evans Halshaw). I'd be grateful for any ideas please.

my warning light comes on saying "check emissions" and the manual tells me to go to my Renault dealer immediately. What is wrong? Can we drive the car normally for any distance

Are u sure that the bulbs are OK? I had no dipped lights on mine, & thought it must be a fuse or another electrical fault. It turned out, both bulbs had gone. I think this often happens when one side goes, the other soon follows.

A misfire doesn't always have to be ignition... it's just the most common cause. Faulty or plugged injector, low compression. You need to check fuel pressure and test the fuel injector flow. Then check compression. If you don't have tools for these tests, take it to someone who does. Testing is much cheaper than throwing parts at the problem.
