Re: Renault Scenic - Engines - Cutting Out On Idle

Presuming you car is a Mk1 phase2-

The main airbox is held with 2 long bolts.
One down each side of the throttle housing fitted vertically..
They have the Tx male heads so you need a socket for them. Socket size is E8 on mine.

There are a couple of spacer washers involved in the mounting so if the bolts are both fitted, happen a few of the spacers are missing.

It would be bettter to fix but isn't critical.

If you have a throttle cable on top of the engine connected to the throttle housing, you don't have a MAF sensor.
You have a MAP sensor fitted into the black finger style inlet manifold.

Are you sure it's doing those revs at idle.
Should be at 750rpm.
It should be on the mark that sits between the 5 and 10 if yours is marked that way.
