Can you confirm if the ECU needs the fault clearing after changing the TDC sensor, there seems to be conflicting ideas on this?

Hi, my scenic has also started to have problems starting from cold - normally taking half a dozen engine turns to start. My only reservation at this point is that its an 8v engine whereas all the other reported problems seem to be with the 16v.

Would anyone know if both engines suffer with the same problem?

Nine times out of ten the TDC sensor won't throw up a fault code,so it's not neccessary to have the ECU codes cleared.Even if the ECU does have a fault code in the memory,as long as it's getting the right signals from the sensor,then it will be OK.It might be worth having the ECU read if your continuing to have problems.

Oh yes....the TDC sensor is a common failing across the Renault range.
