Hi I have a '98 megane RT 1.6 petrol, the engine is having issues

Hi I have a '98 megane RT 1.6 petrol, the engine has started chugging at low revs, if I let it idle then it shakes the whole car then stalls, to start it I have to revving it a lot . At high revs it keeps the engine running but the power is very sluggish, hard to reach 45 mph. It sounds like a tractor.

Zigzag light on megane scenic dashboard comes on car revs high then low usually stalls then coming to a stop. 1998 renault megane scenic rt manual. thanks


this exact problem on a megane coupe is caused by a small air pipe that connects to a 2 inch wide black box that is located under the bonnet near the windscreen on the passangers side. the zigzag light indicates an electrical fault (in this case lack of compression and will affect your revs) if you find this pipe and it has snapped off. the reason for this may be that your engien is lose and moves. grab the engien with 2 hands and see if you can wobble it with allot of play. if so your engien mountings need replaceing. you may also experiance juddering in low gears

98 accent loses engine revs when clutch pressed


I think you will find the clutch plate needs replacing. Your symptoms sound like a slipping clutch. You will need to take it to a mechanic, this is not a job for a handy man.

Low idle


Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle rough idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
