Re: Renault - Clio - Starting Problems - A solution???

I've already started my own thread on this, and have now read this one.
Y reg Clio Grande 8v. Spurts into life for 2 seconds then dies. When (or lately if) it starts it runs faultlessly. So I've
Changed the TDC sensor
water Temp sensor
Sparkplugs and eventually the battery - that gave up because of the pounding it has taken trying to start the damn thing!

I've cleaned the fuses under the hood.

Next I'm going to check the earth strap under the engine then I'm going to check that the black box isn't chaffing through the ECU cables.

then if that fails gonna have it towed to a garage and if that fails - I swear I will never buy another Renault again. Have a Modus too and that isn't exemplary either!!
