Renault Clio - Cutting Out And Problem Starting*FIXED*
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
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
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
