Espace Starting problems

Renault Espace 1989 2.0 TXE InjectionI've had the car almost a year trouble free, then suddenly one day it wouldnt start on the ley, bump started it heard a huge clunk but it started, once i stopped the vehicle upon inspecting where the noise came from i discovered the 2 front engine mounts had snapped and also the earth strap from engine to chassis, these have since been replaced as well as new washer relay that had burnt out, i am now having the same starting problems, all 4 HT leads are sparking, injectors are spraying fuel, turns over on key but will not start, if i pour fuel directly into the carburettor it'll start and run till that fuel is used up then cut out, i'm no mechanic but i know a thing or two, i cannot see any possible reason as to why it will not start. any help would be greatly appreciated as im about readay to scrap it, thanks in advance kev

Renault espace starting problems

I have a 2000 Espace and for years it has suffered from a non-start problem. It can be fine for ages and then, suddenly, there's nothing when you turn the ignition, not even a click. All instruments light up. It's not the battery. Does this sound familiar?

In my case, time and time again it has been what they call the 'firewire' connection on to the starter - the connection becomes corroded over time and fails to pass sufficient voltage.

If the terminal becomes too badly burned, where the voltage has arced because of a poor connection, apparently the only solution is to fit a new starter motor. But so far, in my case, it's just needed a clean of the connector and terminal.

By the way, holding the ignition key in the ON position for some time (30 seconds or more) can sometimes cause it to fire up.
