Before replacing all 4 ligt them one at a time by removing each screw starting the engine and lifting them one at a time. you may only have to replace 1

Yes, it is a DIY job. Fault is usually caused by water ingress damage to the coil packs. There are individual pencil coils for each plug which are held in place by a torx screw. After removal, check and remove any signs of water inside the recessed spark plug tubes. Replace the 4 coils and spark plugs and the problem should go away.

Engine produces little power on acceleration and difficult to achieve over 60 kilometers per hour. Flutters a bit on accelerations


1st question - when was last tune up? Plugs, wires, cap, rotor, all fluids & filters including fuel filter. I'd start there and run a good fuel system cleaner through it. Another thing to watch for that Pontiacs are notorious for is timing chain & gears going bad. Right about 70k-90k you're in the "dark zone" and they give little or no warning. You might consider changing them out also.

1995 k2500 Chevy truck engine runs rough some of the time?


I had a similar problem @105k. I had changed the fuel filter but it was still sending all kinds of codes that were related to 2 problems. Long story short, the main problem was a bad trigger assembly in the distributor (rough running) and the other was a loose engine to body ground (engine code issue). Good luck, this worked for me, now 171k.

Can a toxic fume filter send a megane 2 into limp mode


Not directly, but the engine ECM and Transmission TCM are connected, so if the engine is running badly, this will effect on the transmission, and may confuse the TCM and make it go into limp mode.
Hope this helps
