Just as we are preparing for our summer holiday, the car starts playing up. We were in town fairly early when it started miss-firing so drove straight round to the local Renault dealer for them to have a look at. One of the ignition coils is on its way out, but its not all the time so they couldnt tell which one it was. While in there, I asked them to check out another noise, this turns out to be either the water pump or cambelt tensioner. Either way its a new cambelt, aux v-belt and possibly a water pump to fix it. At least is being done now rather than spoiling what looks like it could be a good trip to the Lake District.
So I’m going the whole hog and having the MOT done at the same time as this expires soon.
