Re: Renault Scenic - Engines - Cutting Out On Idle

If you know anyone with a code reader with live data facility, you could use the rpm reading it gives to cross check.

I'm suprised you've not had stalling too, if the reading is correct.

Does it hold higher revs on a cold start.
Do the revs flare up a little when you twitch the steering wheel while stationary. Hot engine.

Would try to confirm the reading before messing or you might make things worse.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
