Hi All, not been on here for ages.
I have a Micra, but its the same engine as a Clio 80bhp DCi.

Last night, on tick over it was ever so slightly uneven, and then it stalled. Sounded just like it had run out of fuel, (quarter of a tank though).

The hand pump bulb that you use to prime the system if it runs out of fuel seemed a bit soft, and I could not get it to fill up and go hard, (does it go hard?) So, I tried putting an extra gallon of fuel in, and it did make the bulb feel better, and it started, still uneven idle, but it runs. Higher speed its fine.

Do these have an electric pump?

Any ideas please?

You wanna get yourself to Indianapolis for the F1, with that amount of power and a dci you wont need to stop for fuel and the power to weight ration will be massive. :p :d

Fixed now, but thanks for your thoughts.

Turned out the fuel gauge was reading high, about a quarter +, simple thing, it had run out of fuel.

Duuurhhh..
