Before throwing more money at it why not buy a cheap Bluetooth diag to use with your phone and check the parameters of your car. Inlet air temperature, throttle position sensor etc. They're only £5.35 at the minute on amazon. Search for ELM327

I assume coolant level is correct? To assist with diagnostics you may be able to use OBD2 via a cheap reader + display device, probably easiest effected via a bluetooth ELM327, android phone and Torque app. It won't solve your problem, but it should allow you to monitor voltage readings at various sensors that you can then use to assist with diagnosis. Random example bluetooth ELM327 under £4 delivered ex-UK http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/182232004256 but check compatibility. Good luck.

Hello!

Recalling back to our fleet, those Scenic were popular mostly with the diesels, but some petrol's too.

I would go and look at the idle control valve. Its a £30 part (ebay, eurocarparts) and takes about 10 mins to fit (look online, youtube, Renault forums), you will need to reset the computer on the engine in order for it to relearn the idle setting.

Hope that helps!

It was the 2009 model that had 1.6 in both diesel and petrol, I think the 2003 only had the 1.6 16v VVT petrol.
