    Does the team think (that dates me dunnit) that coil failure can be caused by lack of regular servicing ? Given that petrol fuelled cars have their coils sited in the worst conditions for longevity, i.e the hottest part of the engine. Which cannot be best for the insulation. Also they...

    Hi, I recently posted about rough idle on a Clio which I see there is many many people with the same issue. Here it is I removed the coil plugs and noticed one of them had a bigger bolt holding it down, when removed there is a hole going through into the valve cover I think it is anyway...

    First post, with a couple of linked questions. Car is 2006 Clio 3, 1.6 16v, 112bhp. Two of its original Renault Sagem “Made in France “ grey-top pencil coils (Renault part 7700875000) were recently replaced by our local independent (total £180 Jan 2013) after 63k miles. They junked coils 1 & 4...

    Whilst changing the coil pack (3 fixing type), the end of one of the pencil modules has somehow cracked and is left sitting around the plug at the bottom of the recess. Imagine a small doughnut about 10-15mm thick sitting around the base of the plug. This is a nightmare as the recess is...

    Having finally got on the road with my laguna it started making rattling noises between 2-3k rpm. Just had a look and the pencil coil was loose on the very left hand cylinder. Tried screwing it back down but the threads have gone in the hole. Would a helicoil be suitable to fix this or is there...

    Hi there fellow Renault fans, I have two questions. Will the difference in the size of spark plug gap from 0.8 to 0,9 play a significant role in fuel consumption of my 1400 16valve Megane Scenic? Will the smaller gap lighten the load on the pencil coil so that it will last longer ? Kind...

    Hi, First post on the forum and would be grateful for any help. Megane was misfiring so I replaced plugs and coils. When I pushed the connector on to number 2 cylinder is crumbled into little bits, stupidly I cut the wires before looking and now I do not know what wire goes to top, green or...

    Hi Folks. Suspecting coil trouble I am trying to measure the primary and secondary resistances on the ignition coils in my 02 Scenic, which has now had all four coils replaced in the last year. I can measure the primary resistance ok by putting a meter across the two terminals on top of the...

  15. Laguna
    Hi The main engine problems I had with my Laguna V6 sport tourer 02, are the ignition coil failures. On average one every 6 month or so. I changed 9 already. As I was still under warranty so I had the car taken by the AA to the closest Renault dealership (30 miles) and got them replaced for...

    Had the AA out at weekend as car (1800 engine) wouldnt start. Turned out to be flywheel sensor needing cleaning. But in the investigation, the AA guy removed two pencil coils and plugs, both had brown rust stains (on coil bodies and plug bodies) indicating rain water getting in or could have...
