Re: Clio 1.2 2000 Engine cut out suddenly
Check the flat braided earth strap from gearbox to inner wing.
Look from under the wheel arch with steering on full lock.
They can rot and can give slow cranking issues. Could also cause cutting out as some engine electrics will use the same earth path.
Also check battery to body earth points are clean and sound.
