Hello

I wonder if anyone can give me some advice? I have recently bought a 2001 Renault Clio Expression 2.1 16v.

The problem is that it intermittantly fails to start. The lights on the dashboard come on but the engine does nothing. It starts eventually and then runs fine. It has done this 3 times in the last 24 hours, which is a bit of a worry!

Can anyone help?

Thanks
Lucinda

Hi Chris

The immobiliser light does stop flashing after I put the key in, which I think is what it should do?

If the engine doesn't turn over when the key is turned to the start position then it's likely to be either the starter motor,the connections to the starter motor,or the earth connections between the engine and the battery.

If the engine turns over but doesn't fire,then it's likely to be the TDC sensor.

Hope that helps.:)
