Re: Renault Clio - 1.2 16v Misfire Information

I have a 1.4 mk2 clio. I was just wondering whether a dodgy TDC sensor can cause just one piston to fail on its own? My thermostat has been leaking a lot lately and I think I read that the TDC sensor is located right beneath it. If some water/coolant has gone into the sensor, would it affect all the pistons together or can it isolate one?

I have checked the coil for the misfiring piston and it sparks fine. replaced the spark plug with a bosch one aswell and still no response from piston 4

Im really hoping its a cheap fix

Re: Renault Clio - 1.2 16v Misfire Information

my 1.2, 16v, clio campus sport had a similar issue... changed spark plugs and coil pack and ran fine for around 3-4 days (following diagnostics test)...

now the car is very poor in acceleration and wont go above 50-60mph... any ideas?

revised diagnostics test is coming back with a knock sensor issue

would appreciate your help and any swift reply, as its currently costing me a small fortune...

thanks, Graeme

I ruled out my leads by changing them around and checking whether the misfire was still on the same cylinder or whether it had moved. I was a bit lucky in the fact that the misfire is happening on the cylinder closest to the coil pack, so even when I changed the leads they would still fit rather well.

Hi Dale. I had similar problem and when I swapped injectors it seemed ok to, I did notice spray pattern was poor though, but checked in an injector spray booth I notice the said injector was producing a poor spray and fuel delivery rate was well under the other 3.
I bought a new injector at renault 66 and all was well.
Hope this helps you.
On the other hand di you check the tappets or manifolds for air leaks?
