Re: Renault Scenic - Faulty Coils Causing Warning Light(Including General Info)*fixed

Help !!!
My Dad bought a set of coils about 6 weeks ago, I changed all 4 (1.4 16v Scenic 2005), Renault told him they were faulty.
car has done less than 100 miles since. I have driven about 20 miles this week,
Started the car this morning with great difficulty, starts but then cuts out straight away unless you give it some welly. Drove about 200 yards and The dash lit up like a xmas tree..."check emissions" - "Service" - "engine light", car serviced about 5k miles ago, but dealer did not change plugs or air filter ??? Filter has been changed when i did coils and i checked the plugs the same time.
Engine is a little juddery, but will not rev much above 4000rpm. Any ideas.
One other thing if you leave it idling it stinks like rotten eggs just before it stalls.
Currently in pjg68's garage:
Scenic 1.4 16v 2005
