Arrow Renault Clio - Cutting Out And Problem Starting*FIXED*

Hi all,

After having so much trouble with my 1998 clio i think i manged to get it all sorted. I thought i'd take a few minutes and update you all on here, hopefully it may help someone.

Ok the problems i was having were intermittent starting, loss in power and engine cutting out at junctions.

I took it to a renault specilist and they ran the CLIP computer on it. Staright away the problem got flagged as the TDC sensor. got a new one fitted for 20 and it solved the starting problem.

Loss of power and cutting out was due to corroded injector lines. had these changed and the car was alive again!

I know alot of people talk about the TDC sensor on this forum but if your having similar problems trust me have a look at it first. its a cheap part so you havent got anything to loose and solves the problem alot of the time.

Hope this helps
