Re: Renault Scenic 1 - 'Kangarooing' When Accelerating*FIXED*

Possibly not found the solution yet... when we are on the motorway it runs as sweet as a nut, but as soon as after being on the motorway you go into town etc it starts misfiring as if a bad spark plug is the problem, and you cannot get it to go very well....

i am suspecting it could be a spark plug issue as this afternoon i replaced the HT leads to the blocks on top of the engine.... (distributorless) and it did seem initially to make a bit of a difference, but still went badly.

revs drop right down almost to stalling, then the engine sounds like it is running on 3 cylinders only. and has very little power, but once on the motorway it pulls perfectly...

any solutions?
