Re: Renault - Clio - Mk 2 - Not running properly

Lesson to us all, get it apart quickly, take your time when putting it back - checking for other problems as you go - you'll know what to look out for (first) next time even if you do nothing about it now.

I need to do this job on my wife's Clio soon. Think breather is leaking in the inlet manifold, there's plenty of oil in the filter housing when I changed the filter.

It runs fine but, the TDC sensor is getting mucky and the MPG isn't good. Also got a Tiger Seal filled dog-bone to put on... my 8v is so much smoother after that simple mod, will be great to see what it does to a more exciting 16v Sport!
Currently in mah14681's garage:
2001 Clio Mk2 Ph1 1.2 16v Sport, 2001 Citroen Xsara Picasso 1.6 LX (95)
