Re: Renault Clio - 1.2 16v Misfire Information

Hi all

My Y-reg Clio is having the same problem. It sometimes starts but runs like a dog and chucks out a load of soot and it smells bad.

I want to have a go at drying the ignition system. Is there a step-by-step guide on how to do this? I don't want to break anything (further)!

I did have the coil packs replaced a few months ago. Would this count as a failed part or is it just crap design that lets in moisture?

Thanks a lot.
