Hi everyone!

with my limited knowledge of engines - would this TDC sensor apply to diesels? I guess they have pistons which also have to get to TDC before the glow plug heats up???

my 2001 Clio diesel has starting problems - I thought it was the immobiliser but the engine turns over and I guess the immobiliser wouldn't let the engine turn over??

or would it?

since it's a newer model the problem with the leak doesn't apply

currently recharging the battery after it went flat - anything special I need to do when I replace the battery? Like reset the immobiliser as mentioned on another thread?

also someone mentioned a fuse - what was that about?

due to the popularity of this site it takes ages to find the right info (I've been looking for various bits of info for about 3 hours now lol)

anyway - keep up the good work
Currently in summercamp's garage:
always had old cars - I love classic sports cars - am a dab hand with fixing them old machines - currently have my baby - Clio mk 2 diesel
