Re: Renault Clio - 1.2 16v Misfire Information

Wifes Clio seems to have developed a problem maybe related to this. However I replaced the Coil Pack and plugs about a year which seemed to solve the problem.

Now the misfiring and lack of power ( I drive a 5 series BMW so this could just be me) seems to be worse along with a new more worrying problem. Twice recently my wife has got stuck in Sainsburys car park with a warm car that won't start. It seems that she has to wait for the car to cool sufficiently before she can start it.

I have not been there when this happens so can't be completely sure it's the cooling that solves the problem, but what other explanation could there be?

Any help right now would be much appreciated!
Currently in Paul Dengel's garage:
57 BMW 520d (177 bhp) SE Tourer and a 51 1.2 16v Clio Dynamique
