Re: Renault Clio - 1.2 16v Misfire Information

I have a 1.4 mk2 clio. I was just wondering whether a dodgy TDC sensor can cause just one piston to fail on its own? My thermostat has been leaking a lot lately and I think I read that the TDC sensor is located right beneath it. If some water/coolant has gone into the sensor, would it affect all the pistons together or can it isolate one?

I have checked the coil for the misfiring piston and it sparks fine. replaced the spark plug with a bosch one aswell and still no response from piston 4

Im really hoping its a cheap fix
