P reg renaullt clio [petrol engine] - starts up fine, first time, however after pulling off and going fine for about 100yrds, it experiences power loss and judering. The power seems to come and go - i can have my foot to the floor and nothing, then suddenly it revs through the roof. this lasts for about 5 minutes, then back to normal. It has recently passed its MOT, however this has been happening for about a week now and seems to be getting progressively worse. can any body help.

Well the same thing happened to me a few months back with the exact same car but what i noticed was when i was changing the spark plugs one of the HT leads had come off the spark plug so i fitted new spark plugs and re-fit the HT leads properly - Problem solved :D

White smoke petrol 1.4 renault clio.not stem


White smoke: White smoke is caused by water and or antifreeze entering the cylinder, and the engine trying to burn it with the fuel. If white smoke is present, check to see if the proper amount of antifreeze is inside the radiator and the overflow bottle. Also check to see if antifreeze has contaminated the engine oil. You can look at the engine oil dipstick, or look at the under side of the engine oil filler cap. If the oil is contaminated with antifreeze, it will have the appearance of a chocolate milkshake. Do not start the engine if the oil is contaminated with antifreeze, as serious internal engine damage can result.



It is also possible to be a engine problem you should immediate visit a car service.

Renault Clio 1.2 Petrol T reg I have been having


It sounds as though the ground connection(s) to the rear lamps are suspect - this would seem a sensible place to begin along with ensuring the correct bulbs are fitted and the bulbholders and any internal lamp connections are in good order.

It is also worth checking the wires that pass from the body to the tailgate for internal breaks. It will be necessary to pull back the rubber boot.

My car has been on the diagnostic machine 3 times and it has undocumented code 04122 nobody knows what it refers to. I have a Renault clio dynmique 51 reg. MY engine electronics light comes on all the time...


The OBD code PO4122 most common cause is a damaged catalytic converter, poss internal engine problems causing misfires that damaged the converter, a faulty head gasket. Do u notice oil consumption either?

L reg, petrol, 3 door renault clio. n it squeals like a pig.


That is your trust bearing in your clutch assembly, its a cheap part but involves basically a clutch change to sort out, you can either live with it till the clutch fails or depending on how long its been since it was last changed, bite the bullet and get a whole new clutch fitted.
