Re: Assorted Clio Problems

thanks for the replys.

Well some more driving today and some more info. I parked the car today and the warning light came on and revs fell... So rather than fixing it, I just turned the car off. Once off, I could hear a ticking coming from behind the o/s headlamp. I've read this is the Charcoal canister and the solenoid is ticking?

Well anyway, when I turned the car back on, warning light and revs problem immediately. Reved the car, all clear, turned off and the ticking was gone.

Later on today I popped the lid and unplugged the MAP sensor . Upon doing so, the ticking noise started again from behind the O/S head lamp.

Soooo I'm guessing when the problem occurs, the revs fall and the light comes on, it's as good as when the MAP sensor is removed?

I'll order a replacement tonight and update on how it goes.

In the interim, any more advice is welcome.

Thanks again all.
