Depends as to what cylinder(s) as to the symptoms it will run lumpy, after a short while the engine diagnostics lamp will illuminate and voice will ask you to see a Renault Dealer ASAP as the un-burnt fuel will cause the emissions to go sky high.

If just one of the inner coils fails the effect is poor acceleration, but if more that one fails or an outer cylinder if affected then you will know by the juddering of the whole vehicle.....
