    Hi Guys/Girls. New to Renaults. Just been given a 2010 Twingo Freeway 1.2 8v (D7F engine?) with a hesitant engine!! Cleaned the Throttle body, MAP Sensor on Inlet manifold and replaced air filter. Car has new plugs and battery. It starts but very soon the EML comes on along with the Spanner...

    Hi After spending all afternoon searching the forums and Internet I'm going to ask a question. My 2000 Clio 1.4 16v has just developed an intermittent fault which is getting more regular. When turning a corner or accelerating away in 2nd gear the car hesitates badly and then jolts forward...

    During acceleration, the engine hestitates and surges. It doesn't seem like a single missing cylinder, rather all cyinders run or dont. The harder you accelerate, the more jerky it is. Really kangerooing. Once at constant speed, it rolls alone fine on all four. The behavior started about 100km...

    Hello! My Clio 2 phase 2 8v has recently been playing up. From cold the engine is very lumpy when accelerating through the revs (usually between 2 - 5k) sometimes I will be accelerating when all of a sudden the speed and revs drop and no mater how much acceleration I give it, it will not rev up...

    Can anyone tell me if a 2001 Megane petrol 1.4 dynamique (K4J engine) has an EGR valve and if so where is it? I’ve checked a Haynes manual but it only refers to it in the diesel model. The problem I have is after the car is warmed up it has a very rough idle and when I’m driving in the mid-range...

    2002 1.9dci Laguna II, 49000miles, full RSH. I get a hesitation when accelerating (especially noticable in 1st & 2nd gear) at about 2000rpm. I've had it in my local independant garage who changed cam sensor and glow plugs last week, but although not as bad its still doing it. They now want to...

    Greetings people. A week or two ago, my car started giving me a bit of a grief when trying to accelerate at low revs. It did it for two days in a row, but only when the engine was warm later in the day. The temp guage was about half way, and never really exceeds that. Regardless, it had...

    Hello all, first post here. I have a 2003 Megane II 1,6 5dr hatch which for the past couple of years has had a very annoying problem which seems to be getting worse. I encountered it while my warranty was still void but of course the dealer would not listen to me and said there was nothing...

In the morning car starts normal, but after a view miles, as soon as my Espace choose a new gear, it hesitates and seems to lose a bit power. This can only be fixes by pressing the gas pedal further down. When in...

    Hi all, My car appears to be suffering from some sort of hesitation at around 2100 revs. Especially up hills held at 30mph in 4th! I also get a squeeking noise when changing gear. Renault suggest it may be a solenoid. They cleaned out a pipe - don't know which one though, but made no...
