Check out my contributions to the following thread for that warm, fuzzy feeling of "at least someone else has been in the same boat."
Laguna 2 "No Fault Logged"

To Scen1c: I don't recall Renault ever using the IDE in models besides the Laguna, but then I've never really taken that deep an interest in the models we haven't had. The Laguna proudly proclaimed "2.0 IDE " on the front door badges, and I'm pretty sure the engine has "2.0 IDE " printed on the plastic cowel that fits over the top of the engine, so if your Scenic shows signs of neither, then you're probably okay. If you really want some reassurance then take a pic of your engine and send it to me, and I'll tell you whether or not it looks suspiciously familiar.

I often wondered what IDE stood for. It looks like we now have the answer: "Incredibly Dodgy Engine."
