Just brought a Scenic problems problems problems

i just brought a 2004 scenic 1.6 3 days ago Dooh!

Serious Problem

Had the car valeted today they steam cleaned the interior and washed the outside (not touching the engine compartment). when i went to pick the car up the valeting company had flattened the battery we jumped the car off another car and now it won't idle it starts and then the revs drop to low and it cuts out. i took the car on a 3 mile trip down the bypass to warm it up and it ran perfectly as long as i kept the revs up. now its showing an emission error on the clocks and still won't idle, any ideas ?


Car pulls to the right under acceleration, it's ok when cruising but soon as i touch the throttle off it goes into the fast lane. feels very vague at speed too


The car had an M.O.T before i handed over the cash and the one thing it failed on was a n/s lower arm/balljoint. This was replaced but due to me being keen on getting the car and the M.O.T station not having an upto date tracking setup i had to take the car to have the tracking setup myself. i did this today (4 wheel alignment) and found the tracking to be well out. it as now been correctly adjusted the the geometry shows no other reason for the car not driving straight
