Same story...mystery non-starting clio!


I have a 2001 Clio which, for the past couple of months, has been suffering from an intermittent starting problem. It can start fine one day then just turn over and not fire the next.

I took it to a garage who diagnosed the problem as a faulty ignition coil and they duly replaced the part. However, the problem remains and I even went home on a low loader last wk!

I've taken it back to the garage twice who say no problem is diagnosed - it obviously doesn't play up when there! However, two years ago I had a problem with the TDC and got this replaced and I am fairly sure this is the cause again. Since no garage can officially diagnose this, how easy is it for me to take it off and clean it, or replace if necessary?
