Re: Clio DCi rough start from cold *FIXED*

Clio DCI dropped a valve smashed piston and had to be repaired but returned hesitant and lots of cranking to start. Replaced glow plus and the same returned to garage and they found a split fuel filter that was drawing air overnight and also made hesitant running running.
Now runs like a dream.
Original rebuild cost 1970 filter was charged at 36 plus vat, They let me get away without labour.
Hope this might help???
Currently in Sunnyclio's garage:
Clio 15 dci
