check that oil is ok and water all fine and when its cold it runs fine but not for long when it warms up we lose power and it makes a wired nose which it will as it loses its power
Hi. These are prone to coil problems. hen they get warm they can cause a mis-fire and poor running. It will need to be check by a mian dealer or renault specialist to confirm, but it certainly sounds like a coil problem. Thanks Darren.
thanks very much for your help will get on to renault to put it on machine i was getting worried thinking it was engine probes this had made me feel better thanks ray
will let u know how we get on thanks ray
