Re: Clio DCi rough start from cold *FIXED*

Hi All,

I just got a 2003 1.5dCi Clio. It was running a bit lumpy for 10 seconds after starting. After reading this thread I took the U bend pipe of the EGR valve and found it was pretty gunked up. I cleaned it out by using white spirit and poking garden wire round it. It was a pretty disgusting little job to do, but does seem to have fixed the idle at start problem So a big thanks from me to everyone who contributed to this thread.
