I wonder if anyone can help. A while before christmas my 2002 Laguna II 1.6 was cutting out at junctions and even cutting out going down the gears. After a few close shaves I took the car to my local back street garage. They were stacked out as usual so they just took the air filter etc off and sprayed carb cleaner in and the idling was better than ever and there was no cutting out.

I thought that was the end of it, but oh no, on saturday the car started cutting out again. I tried the carb cleaner method as before but still rough idling. However, the car drops revs and sometimes cuts out when I press the clutch and put it into gear.

The guy at the garage said that he has never seen this problem before, so if anyone can shed some light on it I would be most grateful.

Currently in daithi's garage:
