just to clear something up.

A wet test is the same compression test as a dry one but the wet one has engine oil put into the cylinders (not much) just to give it a lining and see if the compression changes.

It can tell you if theres any wear inside the cylinders.

You do a dry test first them a wet test, see what the difference is.

Might be worth trying some injector cleaner as this is a cheap option, had a splutter with my Lag soon after I got her and this cleared it up.

My Clio (2002 1.2) had it earlier in year. Had new plugs fitted, fixed it for a while, then after next long motorway drive it came back. Will mention it at next service, but not paying good money to fix, as it seems to be a common Clio problem. Will pay her off, learn my lesson and move on!

I think its time you checked and cleaned the TDC sensor [with some contact cleaner] as they can get contaminated in metal filings which sometimes corrodes and confuses the signal failing the cleaning process replace it.
