Fault has only occurred once: just waiting for the next. Dealer did nothing at all after finding no fault on computer. This is a lease ecar, but I will have a look at the plugs, and contact the dealer again. Might try another dealer.
Have not noticed a problem with running a/c at idle.
Thanks again

Almost predictably, there's no fault logged in the ECU . They've examined it thoroughly, done a road test, and can find nothing wrong with it. With no point of reference, I can't really expect them to do more.

But more annoyingly, I asked them to check the tracking and replace a broken fog light. It turns out that they've replaced the light (as requested) and the NSF alloy wheel (as definitely not requested) because it was apparently buckled. This seems strange, as while the tracking definitely felt off, I wasn't getting the vibration I'd expect from a buckled wheel.

Though fair's fair, if it's buckled it needs replacing. But somehow, going through the lease company and to my employer (for payment authorisation) the story has become more twisted than the wheel, to the point where the car has "obviously been in an accident" and it now looks like I've been trying to slip a crafty accident repair through the net.

I've set the record straight, but am still peeved that the misunderstanding occurred in the first place and that the work went ahead without them so much as telling me about it. According to the dealer, they 'followed procedure' and okayed it with the lease company, who went on to report it to my employer. If they've done it by the book, then that's fair enough, but I'm still damned annoyed that a (to my mind unnecessary) 250 quid repair has been carried out on a car that I'm only keeping for another few weeks.

So there's steam still coming out of my ears.

I know this is an old thread and I'm following up my own post, but the saga continues.

Off to work I went this morning, stopped for petrol because I was running low, back on the road again and 'she' chirps up "Fuel injection system faulty. Anti-pollution control system faulty" and the car starts running like a bag of spanners. Here we go again...

So I tried the usual trick: Wait until I can stop (at the lights) then turn off and re-start the engine. That usually clears it, but 30 seconds later "Fuel injection system faulty" and the whole bag of spanners thing again. I tried again a couple of times, but couldn't clear the fault for any length of time.

So I drove the car like a bag of spanners all the way to the dealer. Stopping and starting on a couple of occasions when I knew I was going to need some acceleration. The last time I did it, the warning never came back and the car ran okay, but at least the ECU warning light stayed on.

So I left the car with them with the fault showing (whoopee!) Went back to pick up the car tonight, and they told me that the engine checked out fine apart from a logged fault on no.2 injector. Now my memory's not brilliant, but I'm pretty sure it was no.2 that got replaced last time, and I reckon that was less than 6 months ago. Anyway, they've replaced the injector and we just have to keep our fingers crossed.

Still, three weeks(ish) and counting, and it won't be my problem anymore. Let's just hope it doesn't fall apart before then.

Laguna II Owner.. That link is OK.. But he seller is stating that the Grey Top coils are Good ones.. That statement is False..

The only way of "guaranteeing" a good coil is by the manufacturers date code burnt onto the side of the coil housing.. It is true to say the grey coils are good but ONLY from date 330-3 onwards.. Ie Day 330 of 2003..
