Re: Renault Clio 2003 - Engines - Loss of power and Warning Light

Hi im a newbie to this forum and this is probbably a little bit late in replying but im having a similar problem!

Mine just occured today,

Basically though :

My sunroof leaks real bad and its coming through the bottom of the door into passenger footwell due to all the heavy rain we have been having.
anyway on the way to work this morning the car was hesitating to accelerate but with no warnings, went to turn left into works car park indicated still doing 30mph then all of a sudden just dead no warning power gone like it had stalled, came to a halt with braking attempted to restart and nothing, i could hear my filter trying to suck in air whilst starting but it took 5 attempts to start and i then suddenly had a slight burning smell also.

No idea if this is a related problem but im thinking it might also be due to the heavy rain maybe ive got water in something somewhere??

if anyone could offer advice this would be great!

Currently in richamondo's garage:
Clio MK2 1.216V Expression
