Re: Renault Clio 1.4 - Engines - Intermittent starting fault

Hi not sure if my problem is something similar to what you have had or not but my clio wouldn't start for the first time in 3 years a couple of weeks ago. But lately when turning it on it has been juddering quite noticeably and the rev counter doesn't stay put but wavers a lot. It stalls on its own accord and is extremely difficult to pull away without stalling or revving loudly to counteract this. The car jolts if I put my foot even gently on the accelerator or take it off. This happens before the engine heats up and is fine after about 10-15 minutes of driving. Hope someone can help or have an idea what is wrong! Thanks Hannah
