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.

I have a 1995 ford bronco with a 302. When it idles in gear it idles rough and when driving 35 to 45 miles per hour it bucks real bad. I have changed the egr and the sensor on top of the egr. what else...


Hi, Guy! My 95 Bronco runs a little rough whenever one of the vacuum lines gets broken or disconnected. Because of the age, these plastic lines get brittle and break easily. Check them all. You might also want to look at your engine's dampener (behind the engine's main pulley). Sometimes the dampener becomes detached from the pulley and causes the engine to vibrate.

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
