Hi I have a '98 megane RT 1.6 petrol, the engine is having issues

Hi I have a '98 megane RT 1.6 petrol, the engine has started chugging at low revs, if I let it idle then it shakes the whole car then stalls, to start it I have to revving it a lot . At high revs it keeps the engine running but the power is very sluggish, hard to reach 45 mph. It sounds like a tractor.

Replaced fuel pump but still revs up the engine and shuts off?


There is gas, the starter is fine, the battery is good. It doesn't matter what temperature the engine is or how long between starts but if I rev up the engine while cranking it starts okay. Rarely I have to rev at stops or the idle drops too low and stalls. If I punch the gas very quickly it revs and drops quickly and then stalls. Starting has a success rate of about 50% without revving. If it stalls, I must rev the engine to start.

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
