Re: Renault - Clio - Starting Problems - A solution???

I have been having severe problems starting my Cluo 1.5dci. It turns over but doesn't fire. I have recently replaced the battery, fuel and air filters but seem to make no difference.
I eventually called the AA who found small bubbles in the fuel lines. They discovered the manual hand pump for the fuel filter was very soft and didn't look as if it was getting fuel through it.
The solution was to pump the hand pump continuesly until the pump itself became hard, indicating it had fuel
in it. The engine then started fine. This is obviously a quick fix but seems to work fine.
