erm... if theres any power loose and not revving like it should when going for abit it could be the vvt pulley, maybe?
if so then looking at £125 for the pulley and recommended cam belt change which are about £450
Have a look at your ht leads going in to your coilpack, check for any rubbing marks or white marks on them if so wrap these areas in electrical tape for the mean time and replace them. While your there check the connectors for corrosion and clean if required. Thats where i would start
If that was from the Birchangar service roundabout towards harlow then thats me, just finished work and didnt fancy the queue around the roundabout looked epic so took the M11 which on your side looked worse :( hope the traffic moves on for ya, least you have trouble making up time ;)
No mods, and yh it goes as well as it should its just feels like its in a high gear between 2k-3k then it makes normal power. Its a strange one really I can't work it out I have suggested a quick air filter and spark plug service and to use 98Ron fuel for a bit to see what happens
Basically yesterday morning I heard a whine noise from the engine bay as I was going to work yesterday but the noise went on the way home.
This morning the noise was back however much louder so took it into Toomey Renault Southend and they have informed me that the alternator bearings have gone...
