Re: Assorted Clio Problems

Hi, The 1.2 clios can suffer from allsorts of quite random running faults. Usually the TDC sensor will causes intermittant or total nonstart faults. I have found Coughing and spluttering is usually caused by NGK plugs being fitted instead of Renault one,Faults upstream O2 sensors. Faulty coil packs and the major one which was part of an OTS (customer comlaint rectification) was inlet and exaust valves sticking in the valve guides. Which Renault rectified by replacing the cylinder heads.... so suggest checking other stuff first.
