Thumbs up Re: Renault Scenic - Engines - Cutting Out On Idle

SOLVED ..... Hey guys, I sorted out my Scenic 1.8 that kept cutting out at the lights with very low rev's.
After checking all the vacuum hoses and finding nothing I decided to remove the air unit, that black finger looking moulding that sits over the top of the engine and found that my air butterfly was choked up with carbon deposits. I got myself a can of carb cleaner for 4.95 and used it like they said - spray a little and then wipe off with a cloth - reassembled all the parts I took off (you'll need a 10mm socket, thats all) and now its running perfectly.
Contact me if you need a step-by-step guide, I'd be happy to share my experience. Alan
