Question about 2003 Renault 181
2002 renault scenic loses power when accelerating or just driving along electronic fault orange light comes on sometimes. Have spent £500+ quid so far. Last week could not achieve 10 m.p.h. with foot flat on the floor. I have had the electronic fuse/ filter?? replaced as this is what the mechanics computer recommended but no difference.
Any suggestions? I hate driving it like this!
I took my car to a Renault dealer and they solved the same problem by replacing the non-standard 4 prong spark plugs that the previous owner had in the car with the standard 2 prong spark plugs Renault recommends. My water pump also needed to be replaced (different issue, and was identified with a mechanical noise). I also proactively changed the fuel and oil filters along with new oil.
You might also want to look at getting the coils tested, as these tend to fail often causing loss of power, and a mechanical noise.
In most situations, it is better to take your car to the approved Renault dealer to check the fault. My experience with using other mechanics to fix faults on the car was less than desirable, and ends up costing more.
