  1. RENAULT CLIO II 1.4 (75CH) 1998 (Petrol) - Rough running

    Hello, I'm trying to fix a RENAULT CLIO II 1.4 (75CH) from 1998 running on petrol. The symptoms are as following: 1) Can't idle (sometimes can). If I don't hold the acceleration pedal, it just dies. I suspect a bad IAC valve, but I'm unsure how to test it. 2) Rough running. At (supposed) idle...

    I have recently bought a 1997 Trafic for spares or repair which has the 2165cc petrol engine with injection. It is running very rich, to the point where it can die sometimes. It seems worse on idle, but I think this is just that it can cope better at higher revs. There is no diagnostic port as I...

  12. 1.2 16v running rough, misfiring etc

    Hi all, I jumped into my 2001 1.2 16v clio tonight and noticed it running rough shortly down the road. This progressively got worse until it was wanting to die when driving and at idle. To keep it running and to move off requires a lot of throttle and whilst it is spluttering it is definitely...
