Question about 2004 Renault 181
The car is chugging (kangarooing) and also blowing out dark smoke in a morning but seems to warm up and the chugging eventually subsides but makes me apprehensive about doing any distance in the vehicle, do you think it could be the fuel filter?
I do not know much about this vehicle but if it is diesel it sounds like you should clean and or replace air filter and or glow plugs or grid heater... if it is a gas vehicle changing the fuel filter and checking spark plug gaps and plugs and wires also the cap and rotor may have where witch will cause intermittent and weak spark so you could be getting to much fuel and running rich. also if it has a catalytic converter you may want to check if it is partially clogged and if it is have it replaced hope this helps good luck
