I have at '02 Clio 1.4 which has problems starting. When I start it up first thing in the morning, its fine and fires straight up to 1000rpm. However, whenever I come back to it after filling it up eg. the engine takes a while before it starts up and when it start does it barely reaches 200rpm, at which point I have to rev it otherwise it cuts out. I have replaced the spark plugs, installed a brand new air filter and replaced the fan belt incase it was a problem with the battery not being recharged properly. I don't think the battery is the problem as the CD player/radio, lights and e-windows all work fine with just the ignition on but I am not ruling anything out. The starter problem has still persisted and I hope someone can advise me on what the cause may be.

dunno if your clio works like my 98 megane but i had starting probs an it was down to the tdc sensor.. do a bit of homework on the net as you got an 02 but thats something you aint done yet and its cheap as to fix.

good luck
