Re: Renault Megane 1 - Intermittant Starting Problems

My problem sounds very like a lot of the listed above.
Uv been advised on my other thread that my problems likely to be the ... Dephaser solenoid...

2004 1.6 vvt megane
If left over 4 hours to go to complete cold engine when started it will start and die instantly

If I rev to 2k and hold it 10-20 seconds then off the gas it idles and drives fine

It will then start fine every time until its been left a fair few hours to go stone cold. Then the problem repeats. Just bought it and it was serviced the day before I bought it. Avg mpg over 200 miles is 39mpg and there is no rattles which I here is common of a failing dephaser

Hope it's simply I need to replace the solenoid
