Re: Renault - Clio - Starting Problems - A solution???

Not had a look at the vid yet but, what you describe sounds to me like a Throttle Body problem - the potentiometer could be faulty or the other component connected to that circuit could be out of whack (I can't remember what, where that other component is but I'm sure if you searched throttle body and clio on here, you should get some useful results).

Basically when I start my renault clio 1.4 16v, the car just stalls straight away and have rev the car to keep it on. If u go to you tube and search renault clio cuts out when starting. Its a 1:50 video and that's exactly what happens, so annoying, please help.
