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

It's me again. I have fixed the problem. The injector was broken and I went to a scrap yard bought two of them (one because I managed to snap another injector whilst dismantling the fuel rail).

My conclusion to my problem:
Carbon canister clicking sound, slight loss of power/acceleration, maximum speed 130-140 kmph (70-75 mph), coughy exhaust sound, running like a 2 strokes engine, no warning lights on board... it's most likely a fuel injector's fault.

By extrapolation:
Engine management warning light on, big loss of power, very shaky car... it's the coil .

Problems with engine revs, cuting out, most likely the butterfly (throtle body). My conclusion from reading so many posts on different renault forums.
I hope this will come at help for other renault coleagus.
Currently in moontea's garage:
Clio 1.2 16V
