1.4 RT Cold Running Problem

I have a 97 clio with single point injection, the problem is the car starts ok from cold but when driven it judders a lot, as soon as it is warm it drives fine, any help would be most welcome.

Hello and welcome to the forum.

The first thing I'd suspect is the coolant temperature sensor for the ECU .These are available aftermarket(cheaper than genuine ones),but I don't know where they're situated on the Clio.Maybe someone else can add their thoughts.

EDIT;After having had a look at some other information,the Tempertaure Sensor should be located in the nearside end of the cylinder head(just above the gearbox).Hope this helps.

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