I have a clio mk2 1.6 16v, 2005. It has 37000km on it. I live in Mexico and the temperatures we get throughout the year are between 2ºC and 43ºC
The car began to feel juddery at about 10000km but it disappeared, only coming back when starting the engine and disappearing after a few seconds. I promptly informed the dealer, but they said it was "normal" and a test they ran on the car didn't show faulty components.
At about 34000km the juddery didn't disappear, and the dealer prompted me to replace all 4
, which I did. Not at the dealer's shop because it was a ripoff.
The car had sagem
(which I still have around) and I got 4 sagem again. This was 6 months ago.
After 3000km of running on brand new
it is doing it again, the emissions led does not light up, but there are moments where the engine feels juddery (mostly at idle) then the problem disappears. Even the gearbox stick moves when this juddery happens. The car never stalls.
By reading other threads in the site I believe the sagem
are to blame.
I'm no mechanic but I'll try to understand or at least pass the information to someone who knows about mechanics.
- Other than Sagem, I can get Beru, Valeo, Denso or brembu (brembo?)
, which is the best option?
- Is there a reason why
fail other than poor quality?
- Is this a problem that will come back suddenly? I'm even afraid of driving outside the city now, I don't want to end up stranded in the middle of nowhere.
Thanks in advance.
