We are very sure that it is the solenoid valves. Going to see a Renault dealer next week and we suspect that they will suggest replacing the transmission. We are going to demand that they replace the solenoids.

Hello again

The problem with the automatic transmission still exists - we had sort of begun to live with it - getting it to the nearest Renault dealer was inconvenient and the repair would cost some dosh that we don't have.


Upon starting the car the other morning it was clear that the engine was not very happy and sounded as though it was mis-firing on one cylinder. Thinking that it was simply that the the engine was just cold and that it was possibly condensation we carried on driving. Soon however it started to sound like an old diesel tractor and the Toxic Fume Monitoring Warning light came on and remains on. The car is now temporarily off the road until we can get it sorted out.

Any ideas anyone? Is it related to the gearbox problem? TDC sensor perhaps (might tie in with the gearbox issue)? Would water in the petrol explain it (the car had recently been completely topped up from nearly empty)?

Any advice would be appreciated.
