Pause before rev, best OBD software **Fixed**

My megane 1.6 has had a little pause before it revs, I dont notice it in normal driving. Only when testing the engine, maybe I drive too slow
Last week it got worse, and now the engine light is on, and it runs rough, at low revs. It does seem to clear at faster speeds.
The light is not on all the time, but most, only last few days.
I have a OBD reader from when I had my Scenic, so once I install the app on my mobile, I will read the codes.
Ant guesses?

re: Pause before rev, best OBD software **Fixed**

I plugged in my reader, after down loading Torque, and and came with this fault code

P0300 - Powertrain, random/multiple cylinder misfires detected; there was also a smell of bad eggs, hoping this was the car and not me

I have already go some service items ready to fit, I best get busy.

Usually a coil (or Two) While yer in, gap or replace the plugs, large gaps cause coils to break down.
I always carry a spare, in SWMBO's Scenic.
Unless they're really bad, they don't usually throw a specific dash nag.

I bought a service kit, but not one big enough to include a coil pack.

I will change, everything

Is a Megane estate called a 'sport tourer?'

I changed one spark plug and two of the coils and the missing is now cured. It was rather a surprise. I now have to work out how to reset the dash warning, I tried the option on the OBD reader, but it did not work.
MPG gone from 25mpg to 32mpg.
