Re: Toxic Fumes Warning Light

I mostly fill up at the same garage, but so does my partner and she also drives a megane and has no problems. Thats why I had ruled out fuel. If it is a problem such as the intake manifold, or a vacuum leak should Renault be checking these things when they have the car in. As far as I am aware Andy,...

Re: Toxic Fumes Warning Light

Thanks for the reply Andy, sorry to hear about your exhaust!!!! :eek I'm not really sure what to do next? Taking the car to Renault is getting me no where, certainly not any closer to getting the problem fixed. As the error code suggest the engine is misfiring, I am assuming it is only momentarily f...

Re: Toxic Fumes Warning Light

Any advice anyone?

It has since been to Renault again - and guess what, they can't find any faults. Today it has done it again. Is this likely to be coils?

Thanks.

Re: Toxic Fumes Warning Light - Ongoing Saga-Intermittent Fault

I have posted on this thread before regarding the toxic fume filter light coming on - it intermittently flashes for around 30 seconds then goes out again. Since my last post, Renault had another look, thought it might be the injectors and had done some swapping around and checking of other parts - s...

Re: Toxic Fumes Warning Light

when it went on mine, it sounded like a bag of spanners, and i rang the RAC out, He told me the best way was to find which coil has gone it to change them one at a time, start the engine, see if it made any difference, if it didnt, move on the next one, and so on. Some people recomend to change all...

Re: Toxic Fumes Warning Light

Thanks for your help - it is much appreciated. I think I know where the ignition coils are, and apparently its a 10mm socket I need. Might have a go if I get no joy on Wednesday! Out of interest, whats the best method for identifying failing coils - or should I just replace all four. I have just spo...

Re: Toxic Fumes Warning Light

I took it to a main renault dealer who, having had the car for a day, said they had found no faults and had reset the computer. All they will do is run a clip on it, if you're lucky, they might have paid a good 5 minutes attention to it. Also, I would have asked them if they found no faults why wou...
