Re: Renault Clio 1.4 - Engines - Intermittent starting fault

We had a the same problem (i think) if you could tell me if u have a light flashing that looks like an engine? if so it could be your plugs but the most likely problem is your leads or coil pack (ours was coil pack) as this is a common problem with clios. our car was running on 3 cylinders because 1 coil pack failed, this bade the car virbrate alot, rev cout was all over the place. my advice to you is to get it sorted asap as driving on only 3 cylenders is not only unsafe, it puts strain on the engine whick could blow the engine. hope this helps?
