yeah, i release handbrake and the crank moves and then i turn the key and it starts easy, but its a bit daft!

The TDC is now clean. Was havin an issue with it not starting prior to this (engine wouldnt fire after leaving it cold for long periods) now it seems to be fine though after the TDC clean but im left with this bump start issue.

So you reckon it may be starter motor? Car's only done 40k, suppose it could go t**s up anytime

Currently in slingshot's garage:
Clio II RN Grande
