Hi Bob - This is only a shorty as I'm about to go get rid of the swirling noise as discribed in the megane 'how-to' guide on this forum!

You describe our car perfectly with the bit I've quoted above. Once it starts (eventually) it'll drive any distance without hesitation or loss of power. It's just getting it started which is always interesting...

When you got your HG and pump done did it improve the starting problems?
