95 renault 1.4 auto misfire
hi all new here i recently bought my wife a old style clio though after a day of her driving it it has come up with a starting and running issue.
we have had it to our local garage and they did a diagnostics test with no joy they also serviced it i.e new plugs HT leads distributor cap rotor arm
filters. and still the same.
basically what happens is when its been stood over night it will start off the key and idle of a few seconds ok then soon as you start to rev it it starts misfiring and blowing fine black smoke and leaving a soot reidue on the floor from the exhaust and the CAT starts smelling.
if you try to start it again it turns over for ages then splutters into life still with the misfire.
sorry about the long post hope it makes sence also does anyone have the firing order on the plugs and dizzy cap and where number 1 cylinder is just want to rule out the garage ant put the leads on wrong
thanks again in advance
