hiya im new to this so excuse me if im not doing this right.

i have a 2001 megane cabriolet 1.6 dynamique i have had it for about a year and a half and not had to many problems with it.

that is until tonight.
was driving to my friends house and car started juddering and sounding like it wanted to cut out. it started to smell a bit like rotten eggs and the warning light for monitoring exhaust gas kept flashing on and off. i turned car off and restarted it and it came back on again. anyway i managed to get to my friends house (which was only just a bit further down) and took her car and left it there.
anyone have any idea what it could be thats the problem
many thanks

Welcome to the forum, Sarah. Sounds like either a faulty oxygen sensor or a faulty coil pack. Either way it needs sorting before danage is caused to the cat. Is the car still under warrenty? If so arrange for your dealer to carry out a diagnostic and repair, if not a good autoelectrician can do a diagnostic for a lot less than Renault.

Hi Sarah, I now have an identical problem with my Megane Cabrio - the engine is juddering as if about to cut out, the exhaust monitoring light is flashing, I think the revs may also have dropped slightly. What turned out to be the problem with your car? Which parts if any did you have replaced? Thanks, Kris

My 2005 Kangoo 1.6 has the same problem - has anybody figured out the cause? I would be really interested to know.
