Hi Everyone just joined off on a charity rally the screwball 2017 on the 20th September

We bought a 2003 megane cc 1.6 16v for it. I have a big issue as we leave on wednesday for 5 days of europeam driving.

The car has develpoed a problem when your driving and go to accelerate it looses power no acceleration if i put the clutch in it drops below 500 rpm and curts out having to restart the engine and it will drive again doing it regular now. No lights showing on the dash.

The car has done 97000 miles
Work carried out so far
New plugs
Looks like swapped coil sticks
Ive cleaned the throttle body
Replaced 2 worn o rings on the map sensor
Oil and filter change
Air filter changed

Ive read the codes tonight Only codes were 2 p0136 & p0141
02 sensor bank a no 2 which i beleive would be post cat so shouldnt cause issue. Ive reset them

Went to look for a fuel filter not one fitted tried to remove the pump to inspect it incase it was blocking but unable to undo the locking ring.

Can here the pump running

Anyone got any ideas what it could be running out of time to get it sorted?
