Re: Renault Clio - 1.2 16v Misfire Information

Hi. A few weeks back, I had probs accelrating on the motorway, especially uphill. Got back into town and had real issues even pulling off, really hesitant. When I got home the car was stuttering about all over.

Anyway, cue an internet search and read up about the coil pack. Bought one and fitted it myself, hopped in the motor and it's definitely running smoother, but when I got out it bloomin stinks. I checked the oil level and it is at the absolute max (and this is two months after a full service). Also the oil filler cap and surrounding area is quite badly soiled. Could the bad smell be burning oil , or could the probs with the coil pack have caused damage to my cat? Really appreciate any response. (on the plus side, I've discovered that working on your own car is a real buzz!). Cheers.
