Re: Megane Scenic kangarooing

Did you remove the pipe to check it? often it cracks right on the bend and is difficult to spot, when the engine moves on its mounts this open up the crack and the map sensor see's a massive increase in manifold pressure, basically atmospheric pressure, when the engine moves back again the crack is closed and normal manifold pressure is read again, hence the kangaroo-ing, which can be quite severe.

thanks for the replies btw.
