As soon as you put foot on throttle the timing is out and no acceleration. It doesn't cut out it's lumpy and backfiring.
He has taken her to Dales Renault and they will put her on the computer next week. Problem is she is a 1995 and I understand that a lot of the faults don't show up.

They said the same thing last year when I had key immobiliser problem. Result was leak through aerial into sensor cured by sealant.

Last September some &(&(&*^ stabbed my petrol tank and stole my petrol. (At the time of the petrol shortage). Renault put a new tank on and would imagine they would have done the filter and pump then?
Quoted £500 of which I had to pay £100 as it was an insurance jobey.
