Just got a call back from renault regarding my misfire (182)???



  182
Ive finally got an answer out of these no hopers regarding the fault with my 182... It went in on the back of an AA truck last saturday because it started to misfire really badly and had the exhaust gas monitoring light flashing on the dash.
They kept saying they was gonna let me know, they never called me at all when they kept saying they would call me, I had to keep going up there to get some answers, they really did keep messing me about..... Anyway ive just had to chase them up again because of more broken promises and they have said that the fault is my spark plugs and leads does this sound right to you?

Would my 182 with 23k on the clock suddenly brake down into misfire and the fault be that it needs all spark plugs and leads changed??

Im not convinced????

What do you reckon?

Rob.

The 182 broke down into misfire with the flashing exhaust on saturday and as quickly as it happened it stopped and returned to normal and then came back again, was fine when it went to the dealer..

Well iirc the spark plugs don't need changing untill the car hits 72K.

At the moment my temp sensor has been playing up, and like Mark Cup said one minute it's fine and the next it's playing up, so it might well be that.

Quite possibly the plugs or leads, process of elimination, try plugs first as these are cheapest then if no joy then the leads, distributor cap and rotor arm. Had similiar with mine when I first got it and it was a plug at fault and that was with only 33k on the clock. Depends on the driving style, town, etc, etc. Needs to be plugged in to be sure, prob. cost you about 40 - 50 quid though. Good Luck

Special order on the distributor cap and rotor arm mate. You'll be waiting ages...

Sounds positive then mate. Certainly sounds like a dodgy lead or plug being so intermitent. I'm sure you'll be blasting through Dartford Tunnel with a smile on your face again tomorrow!
