Re: Clio rough start from cold

well not to get into a tuning box good/bad thing, I just mentioned its fitting for completeness.Who knows it might be helpfull for cold starts.

I just mean that on a relatively new 1.5 the starting/idle varies a little between the 2 extremes of hot and fully cold engine. It might be that way in any case.
The egr valve on my old car (petrol) was the only cause of trouble (engine lite on n barely kept going symptoms at odd times).
It was professionally cleaned once the other times when I noticed the light flick on maybe 10 times in 80k miles I took the car for a good "blast" and seemed to cure it.
Thats my previous egr experience,(if thats the problem)

Currently in coup's garage:
RM III coupe 1.5dci FVT,Audi TT Mk1 ,a bike and too much rubbish.
