this is sorted now..

but readin a few things online about chuggin, i wanted to ask another question, and its been happening to my car sooo long i thought it was normal.. is their sumthin rong?

when the engine is cold, and i start car up in the morning, when i drive it you can feel it sort of chugging or coughin rather, obviously with it cold, i dont put fut down but say i came to a roundabout and it was cold, and u put ur foot down, it'll pick up but just sort of rough. i dont know if this normal because the oil hasnt got round the engine etc.. but after the car warms up a bit not even to full temp, its completely fine.

is their anythin wrong? if so, what could it be?

maybe a slowly failing fuel pump not delivering enough fuel to the engine, or a clogged fuel filter?

Do you think i should get my fuel pressure checked?

btw. what is the fuel preassure on a clio?
