Re: 2002 renault clio 1.2 cuts out when driving and some times no throttle respons
Hi. I am having a similar problem, doesnt happen when engine is cold or when it is hot; only happens as it is warming up. I put my foot down on the accelerator as I am driving; I get no response and then after a few seconds, the engine responds suddenly and the car shoots forward. I have noticed that the engine will idle at about 800 rpm just fine when cold then as it warms up, it will slow to almost stall point and then return to 800 rpm and it cycles like this (normal idle / almost stall) every 5 to 10 seconds for 2 to 3 minutes before settling down.
Tonight as I had the bonnet open and it was dark, I noticed that there is also an arc from ht lead on cylinder 3 to rocker cover; this causes a rough idle. The ht leads are all brand new. are these problems connected. What might be the cause?
Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks
