Re: Renault Megane Engine Idling

OK I think I am getting closer to resolving the issue.

I replaced the coils myself as its a pretty straightforward job. The engine idling issue was still present though to removed the coils and checked the plugs. I noticed that the middle 2 plugs had a ring of oil around the base so I replaced all 4 plugs and for the past 3 weeks my car has been running fine.

However this week its happened again so going to remove the coils and check the plugs. If there is another puddle of oil around my plug I am guessing the rocker gasket is leaking.

I will keep the post updated with my progress for anyone else having the same issue.
