Ok guys as promised an update..............

Yesterday had to drive from home south of Brussels to Nijmegen in Holland (a 400km round trip), let's just say I was a "tad" apprehensive about it but in for a penny ..........

Guess what - no issues at all, full power, no throttle misses, no warning lights - absolutely tickety boo.

This morning I've just arrived in Luxembourg (another 210 kms), and all is well, again no warnings and no missed throttle beats that I can detect. most of th eway has been sitting at 130km/h on cruise control - it's a straight autoroute most of the way - and even up the steeper inclines, the old girl never seemed to miss a beat.

So for me the warning light issue seems sorted (for now) but I'll still be apprehensive about it - after all it is a renault

Next weekend sees the 1100 km trip to Montpellier so I'll try update if all is well or not...........

Agaisn guys (and all other forum posters) thanks for the advice and help.

going through the exact same issue right now (*Emergency Advice Needed* LagII > Acceleration 'throbbing' !?) and this thread (and MadNoels advice) are exciting news to my lugs! the cars into another garage tommorrow (the last one wanted to take off the turbo and send off for repair with really no major pointers indicating this as the fault) will get the guy tommorrow to check this electrical connection.. .

Hey Maq

I offer you my congratulations as these Laguna's are the greatest ENIGMA I have personally encountered.

Did you ever get the ECU codes read during your several months of misery? I would be interested to learn what it may have shown up as.

I am currently trying to go through the process of elimination and have a suspicion that it is the MAF or the wiring. I have more confidence in my own ability to learn and make a pinpoint diagnosis than I have with garages.

Have a safe journey

Maq, do you have any update on how the car is doing now that it has been 2 months or so?

I have a 2.2 dCi Laguna Dynamique.

I have the same issue and it is getting annoying. When I get to 70mph or so when joining a motorway after the slip road I will get the light. The power then seems non existant. If I come to an incline its a real pain, on flats it is bearable but still nothing like it should be! It then stays on till I can stop and turn the ignition off. However, get to 70 again and it will return.

Had my local mechanic check it out and the computer he connected was saying some issues with the Air Flow sensor. He said he found some sort of air leak and replaced the upper engine gaskets. 2 day job and he charged 160 for parts and labour.

However, the problem is still there! Also the car now consumes more fuel, it has gone from 43mpg to 32mpg for motorway driving! At one point for town driving it was showing 10mpg.

I have the car booked in with him for the timing belt in a few days. If your solution has worked I can print the information off and show it to him.

Any advice would be much appreciated.
