My acceleration seems to recover after the dead spot. But I cannot get past the dead spot in third and only manage sometimes in second!!

Any way i'll put that Cat on the list of things fo the garage to check.

So far I have

1)Cat (from you)
2)Fuel pump
3) MAF
4) ECU remap.

Any other ideas. the more info i give the garage the better.

Many thanks.
Also check that your car has the correct spark plugs in it. The spark plugs for the IDE engine are different to a normal spark plug (they are longer).

When I needed spark plugs for my car I made sure I went and bought them from Renault to be sure they were the correct sort.
