Hi All, hoping someone may point me in the right direction. I have a 1999 Rt 1.6 Megane 16v which I am trying to sort.
The car starts fine but is lumpy from the off. Revs stay at about 500 rpm and seems to get lumpier as it gets warmer. There is a pop pop pop sound from rear of exhaust which is quite noticeable.
I also have an irritating metallic sound coming from under the bonnet which in an older car would be the sound from a dodgy solenoid, this turns into a constant ticking as it warms up. The location of this is just behind drivers headlamp and looks like a black washer bottle 8 inches in length with an electrical cap with 3 or so wires coming into it. (i know i'm dim but never mind)
I really don't know if the 2 are connected and may be seperate issues but if anyone could help I would really appreciate this.
If this post is in the wrong section my apologies, and would you move to correct please
