Re: Clio rough start from cold

Firstly never ever use easy-start on a diesel engine. The risk of damage and personal injury just ain't worth the risk. I have seen both serious engine damage and death as a result.

So what did they use in the good old days before easy start was invented. They just squirted in some diesel directly into the manifold but with modern diesels having a MAF and a MAP you run the risk of damaging these expensive components using either method.
