    Hi, I have a 2007 1.9 DCI Scenic. I have read lots of posts about the P0235 code (that I have) and the various causes and remedies. Haven't found a post with exactly the same symptoms. If I start the car, immediately run the revs to 1500 and move off keeping the revs up all is well. Once I...

    Hello, my 2009 Megane has started making a shuddering noise when idle, it goes away when I move the car but always comes back when idle. It's not loud but it's definitely something that's not happened before. Has anyone any idea what this could be? Many thanks
