An 02 reg with the D7F engine.. Could be one or more of the following..

1: Defective spark plugs.. There is a date code punched onto the side of the Champion plugs.. ie 2b, 3d etc.. If the plug is dated lower than 4G then there is a solution that states that all the plugs must be replaced.. It can cause poor spark and/or interference and spikes on the injection computer. (it is also recommended to reprogram the injection computer, although dealer only)

2: Dirty Throttle body .. Requires removal and cleaning the butterfly/body..

3: Defective throttle body .. Replacement only, and is a fairly common problem.

4: Defective upper engine loom.. Replacement with modified loom.. Known problem and pretty common..

5: Defective MAP sensor .. Known problem, not very common

6: Water ingress into injection computer loom connectors. Particularly the righthand side one.. Fix is to replace the upper engine loom and injection computer..

7: Incorrect valve clearances.. Commonish problem.. Fix is to remove rocker cover and reset them..

I used to have a V8 Discovery that did this. The problem was with something called a potentiometer. Do Clios have one?

WebCode, I took the car to the garage I bought it from and their machine told them that there were 4 faults. 3 of which were unspecific and 1 said it was the computer? Are you of the same opinion as you were before? Ta.
