Renault Megane 1 - Misfire*FIXED*

I have had my 2001 1.4 megane expression + for just over a month and today it's started to shake when idle, this is obvious to passengers as well as me with the gear stick, wheel, pedals etc.

The revs are also quite low, and needs quite a bit of petrol to pull away and acceleration can sometimes feel quite slow. The exhaust was producing quite a thick white product at the beginning of journeys. There was also a weird smell inside the car intermittently, the A/C and heating was off, and it wasn't really a burning smell.

The shaking just started happening today, but I have noticed a few things the last couple of days, such as heavy steering and slow acceleration, but not really too much to be initially concerned with.

It's covered by the dealer, so I will see them, but just wondered if anybody had any ideas?
