Had a similar problem on our 1.2 2002 Jazz. Occasional random jerkiness with no apparent pattern and every time we took it in to the garage it behaved beautifully. Eventually they diagonosed a faulty EGR valve, replaced it (it was under warranty) and we've had no problems since. Apparently this not uncommon.

Sounds like the EGR valve. I have had to replace mine recently and it's a known problem with the Jazz. If you're handy, it's not a difficult job, but you may need to reset the OBD II computer to remove any detected fault.

The symptoms for mine were that the car ran smoothly when the throttle was open, and when it was closed, but when you just have your foot on the accelerator (gas pedal) for example crusing at 30-45mph in 5th gear, it lurches all over the place like you've got a kangaroo under the bonnet.

If cleaning the part doesn't fix it, then you need a new valve. Unfortunately they are expensive - about £215 just for the part, and I can tell you from experience not to bother with a used part. :( You can save on labour if you have a torque wrench though - it's dead easy to change.

this is a common fault for Renault scenics.its the central locking/immobiliser system,and would you believe it, as the fault is intermitant(sometimes it shows,sometimes not)you will need to let the garage drive it around for a WEEK OR TWO so that they can put the diagnostic computer on everytime they turn it off.the last one i did took a MONTH.(swopped cars with the customer she drove mine,i drove hers).she now never locks it.with the remote.

Cam position sensor fault indicated on computer diagnostics .Timing chain jumped will this have caused valve damage.Vehicle is a civic type r on 2002

With Vtech motors, if the timing belt jumps to much yes you will get valve/piston damage. This type of damage is usually very noticable (knocking, loud head noise, no start) Best thing to do if no damage is noticed have the belt adjusted back into timing. jumping one rib maybe 2 might not have enough to cause damage my prelude jumped and didn't have a problem
