Hi

I have a 2004 Renault Clio II 1.2 16v. The engine is runnig on three pistons. No 2 is dead, i have tried everything a can think off. (Change plugs, change injecters and pull oil in no. 2 plug hole incase it's a stick valve) but nothing is working. No. 2 piston does kick in some times. Is it posible that the valve have burned or are there any one that can assist.:confused:

Putting oil down the plug hole won't make a darned bit of difference if there is a sticking valve. Better still a sticking valve will cause poor compression.

Could be an ignition coil fault though.

What readings did you get when the compression test was done?:)

I'm not sure, will phone the mechanic tomorrow and give you feed back. What I did tonight was testing the injecter lume. Now she's ideling find but when you drive, it runs on 2 to 3 pistons.
