Re: Clio 15 dci

It could possibly be the case that either some petrol remained in the tank or (maybe) an airlock was introduced into the fuel line.

The fact that the car starts with easy start, but won't continue running on its own, would suggest strongly that fuel isn't making its way into the combustion chambers.

Do you have breakdown cover?
