clio 1.4 starting problems

when i start the car the the revs bounce and the exhaust gas monitor light doesn't go out.
the engine then dies if i release the throttle.

however if i have managed to drive it for a good 10 mins or so without having to stop then this doesn't happen.

as you can imagine this is very frustrating

Re: clio 1.4 starting problems

A dirty TDC sesnor or a faulty engine coolant temp sensor can cause such problems.
