    Default High rpm miss

    Hey guys,
    I've got a 2013 Renault Megane GT220 turbo wagon and I have noticed that it's missing when I get over 4/45000rpm...
    I'm not sure if it's something to do with the plugs or something in that area?
    Can anyone help me out with this?
    Thanks in advance!!

    High or low boost if it doesnít do it if you slowly bring the power up your plugs are breaking down have the plugs ever been done what sort of mileage

    Yes, I would have thought the rev limiter would've kicked in by then - that's not the issue is it? Lol.

    Have you checked the fault codes? I've had a high RPM Miss (probably closer to 6000RPM) in My S16 which was a dodgy O2 sensor, I think an intermittent connection of one of the wires at the actual sensor.

    Did the plugs get changed at the service? What plugs were fitted with what gap. As a test you could gap the plugs you currently have down to 0.7mm, and see if the miss goes away. If plugs not changed, just fit a new set of NGKs that are standard for your engine, checking the correct gap. Standard plugs are inexpensive at about $5 and Iridiums $14-$22 each.

    No the plugs didn't get changed, my car's at 135000 kms.
    What's the difference between the two different types of plugs?
    You've all been a great help guys!!!

    Iridium last longer because of the material, and possibly perform bettter as they have a fine electrode. A new set of either type would be OK. Standard plugs last maybe 25k, iridium 60-80k in good conditions.

    Get the car connected to a auto analyser ASAP.
    Should pick up fault easily.

    Engine misses and turbo is bad news and costly
    Just ask Daniel Ricciardo

    Ok so I've been hunting around for new spark plugs at super cheap auto and repco, both have told me that they don't sell them, spoke to head office and have discovered that I can only buy them from the dealer...
    This is complete and utter bullshit to be controlled like this!

    Are these the correct plugs? If they are here is a comparison price and another way to buy.

    It does for me.

    You can find the plugs on Ebay (ebay.com.au)

    I used Renault Megane 220GT spark plugs in the search box

    Wow. How often do you indulge? Thanks for the information - it hadn't occurred to me to go to Amazon.

    Hi sabstar
    There have been good suggestions here for buying new plugs at the right price. So go for it !
    Here is my suggestion for the future purchase of parts for your car that is a bit unknown here. Go to ebay UK motors section and put your model in the information box and the wanted item in the search box. It will pull up lots of suppliers for parts identified as fitting your car which is probably well known over there. Most things I have purchased for my French cars and other peoples Fords will be delivered in about 10-15 days to my door at a very attractive cost including freight. Never had a problem.

    In a quick look for your plugs I found a set of 4 genuine Renault plugs, (just as an example only): Genuine New Renault Set of 4 Spark Plugs - 7700500155. This fits Renault Megane 2013 MK III [2008-2018] Coupe 2.0 TCE 220

    PS Of course I should have said to contact the advertisers on this forum. They can usually supply any consumable bits for all Renaults(+Pugs and Cits too). Up above in the top bar "OUR SPONSORS"
