Post Chugging

Looking for any help regarding my 2003 clio 1.2 16v billabong, The car is chugging when driving off causing weak acceleration. I have heard it could be the plugs or the HT leads or even both. Any advice would be greatfully apprieciated.
Cheers guys.

Hi BIGMADRAB1, first off, it is considered to be shouting if you post in captitals. I'm sure if you are patient there will be help forthcoming

Hello and welcome to the forum.

If you use the search facility on here for information on 'Pencil Coils ' or 'Clio Misfire' I'm sure you'll find out everything you need to know.It is a very common fault with Renault 16 valve engines and has been covered in great depth on here before..You'll either have a coil pack with leads built into it,or seperate coils per plug........

If you have any problems finding the info,post back here and we'll point you in the right direction.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
