Re: working on Clio Brakes and handbrake on my own-frustrated, confused & need some h
Thanks for that info. Came a cropper yesterday unfortunately. was running car up to re-charge battery while working and has a problem with irregular idling. Started of idling nicely at about 800rpm and i left it running for 3/4 an hour. came back and it was idling at about 1200/1300 rpm and just as was about to turn it off it overheated and spewed rusty looking water from the coolant expansion tank!
What the hell is the problem?
I know the previous owner didnt look after it, didnt check the
and whilst driving, it seized up. She got the cylinder head/head gasket fixed at garage. This problem apparently caused some issue with the idling. Some days you can start car up and it idles nicely, another day it revs high and some days it just doesnt start!
I think I've got more than a headache to deal with. Any advice on the idle and the overheating problems?
Currently in robdurham's garage:
