Re: Renault - Clio - Mk 2 - Not running properly

The piccie is from a 1.2 16v phase 2.

Yours might have a different filter fitted but is it the same pipe as fitted near the filter in the pic.?

If yes, that's the wiring to the oil pressure switch.
It might just need a new pressure switch.

I would fix that first then see if the oil light is going off and staying off.

On a healthy engine it should run at 600 without the oil light coming on.

I'd fix the oil pressure side of things before getting involved in the running issues.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
