Re: Renault Clio 1.4 8v - Info on starting problems - HELPFUL!

Well after thinking I had sorted the problem it has returned again. Decided this may now be a fuel problem (or lack off) to the engine. I have found the relay for the fuel pump and removed it. Got the same symptoms of turning over but not firing up. Re-fiited the relay and it started. Repeated process and again when from not starting without the relay and starting when fitted. I have sourced a relay from Halfords but can only get a 30A relay with the correct pin configuration. The 40A has a different configuration. Seems to start up OK but wanted to make sure the lower rated relay will not burn out, etc. Have found a relay but it is coming from China and at the price it is I am not sure of the quality.
