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

Theres a lot of questions in this thread on starting or not starting.

If you try to start it and the engine turns over but doesn't start until you have done it a few times it is usually the TDC Sensor, there is no need to pay up to 100 to get a new one fitted.

You only need to clean the connections to the TDC and the tip of the Sensor so it is shiny again, after a couple of years it gets dust and dirt on the tip and simply stops

This is what the TDC Sensor looks like.

A problem well stated is a problem half solved !
