Re: Got a mk1 clio just over a week ago, need a bit of advice about a few problems.
The brake linings on the clio's rear drum brakes become detached frequently. This might be the cause of the brakes jamming. There's a video on youtube with someone repairing this
I think your engine still has a distributor, it could be cracked causing misfiring. I'd check the wiring to the fuel pump carefully too. How full is your fuel tank - dirt in fuel? The most common fault related to ignition or timing on this forum seems to be the flywheel sensor.

no clio :-(
