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

The Rac man had a look in the engine - in the attached picture behind the grey renault bit with the oil and to the left of the engine coolant there was a metal cap here which was sort of loose and could be wobbled. Underneath were three (i think) wires which had become exposed and some were bare. He thinks perhaps when i was driving these wires were being rubbed and either earthed out or shorted.

The garage today have replaced the wires and are taking it for a drive to see if this happens again. But typically each time someone else has driven it its been ok. I guess the real test will be when i put it back on a motorway but does this look like anything someone else has done to fix the issue?

Im not a car person so i dont know the name or purpose of the wires they have fixed....hence the pictures!
