Re: Clio rough start from cold

If you check the volts at the battery on start up it should show about 12.3 or so turn on ignition and it will drop to less than 12 if the plugs are working then if all's well with the alternator should come up to 13/14 as soon as the engine starts.

Who would design a vehicle that falls over when you stop?

If you find a fix for your problem please let us know it will help others.
