Very common fault - idle air valve. There are two types, a 2 bolt or 3 bolt fixing. If you are in the UK give me your registration number and I will give you the part number.

    Yours is the 3-bolt - part number 6617092



    Or it comes under part number IAV139 at most motor factors (cheaper way to buy)

Faults like this can rarely be solved in this manner as there are many things it could be, plus you need specialised diagnostic equipment. Take it to a renault repairer and get them to look at it.

Speedo will cut out when driving


Sounds like your "speed sensor" is failing. When it fails it will cause irregular shift patterns and engine idle speeds.

Ford tick over problem


The battery could be slightly weak, making the computer go on the fritz, try a fresh battery!!!! The rev counters bounce often with a weak battery.

Leave feedback good or bad.

BMW 535 auto gearbox issue?


hello jimandsuecla, you could potentially have a trans torque converter that is staying engaged. If the converter does not release, it would be similar to slowing down a manual transmission in first gear and not pushing in the clutch. You could also potentially have an idle valve that is sticking/binding and not responding enough to change in rpm and load. Does the car stall when the a/c is on and when the a/c is off? Have you had any shifting concerns. What is the current idle rpm reading while in gear with the a/c on or off?Any additional info will be helpful.Thanks
