I have a 55 plate grand scenic 1.6. I have had mant problems with it. The coils have already been replaced and i have a constant problem with it not starting. I've never had such an unreliable car. When...

Coils are a common problem, sorry to say.
There are a few potential things to replace. But its expensive guess work.
I would bite the bullet and visit a Renault dealer.
It could be:
1. TDC sensor. TDC stands for Top Dead Centre. If the igition does not get a signal from this sensor it does not know when to ignite the fuel.
2. Sometimes the temp sensor that tells the ignition how warm the engine is can fail. If the ignition gets a false reading or no info it will assume a set value. This can make the car try to start as its got the "Choke on" and if the engine is semi warm it will not allways start first time.
3. There are loads of other sensors that can fail and cause it not to start.

As you say it will do this at any time, is it its mainly when the engine is hot or warm?

When the car is working does it drive ok, or does it have a lack of power?

Let me know.

Check Injector on Renault Megane

You don't say if the car is misfiring, but that's what it sounds like to me, could be a possible ignition coil faulty are heads of the ignition coils Gray if so then probably yes, A way to diagnose the problem, unscrew all 4 bolts from the coils now start engine with the engine running slowly lift up the first coil if engine starts misfiring or stalls coil is ok, if not replace faulty coil check all coils in the same manner.

(You may have to lift up the engine cover to find the coils)

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

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.
