Check timing belt and idling. Your idling revs should be poor. Check out tacho. It should be at least 700rev/min.

Clio cut out while driving and now won't start


If it made a 'whurring' sound instead of the normal cranking it may have broken the timing belt. If you continue to attempt to start it the valves and head could be damaged. I recommend having it towed to your mechanic

Power steering Renault Clio


I could be wrong, but I believe that model of clio is fitted with electric power steering. The electric motor is fitted inside the car on the steering column. If there is a problem with the steering it will need to be checked by a renault dealer. The power steering motor thermal cut out is a common issue.

I have a renault clio 52 reg, the engine coolant keeps goin down


i have a clio, had same problem too. its the head gasket. when this breaks or cracks it allows water into parts of the engine it should not, and therefore the water starts to mix with the oil forming this 'light brown gunge' the problem is that when driving with a damaged head gasket you will damage the head of the engine too which is why this is reoccuring. your best bet is to take apart the engine, clean it out, buy a new head gasket and then get the head of your engine skimmed. this could solve the problem depending on how damaged your head is.
