Re: Renault Clio II - Electronics - TDC sensor

Hi There,

I am new to this thread. My daughter purchased a 2001 Mk 2 Clio 1.5 diesel which worked perfectly for two days. The car will start up and work as if normal until you put your foot on the accelerator when the engine will just cut out once you try to put any load onto it.

The RAC ran their diagnostics tool and it came out as a sensor problem between two sensors which were not talking to each other. One (CAMSHAFT) was changed and the engine revved up then cut out. Then the other one was changed (CRANKSHAFT) and the car would not start at all.

So the RAC lady put both old sensors back into the car and towed it to the garage.

Does anyone have any idea as to what this could be. The RAC lady said she had never seen anything like this before and so did a mechanic friend of mine. Help, please!
