SOURCE: petrol 2litre starts ok but

I'm not familiar with the Renault specifically, but most vehicles have a method of dealing with carburetor icing. When the weather is cool and damp and the air is sucked into either a carburetor or throttle body, the air pressure changes.
Inside the intake manifold there is a significant vacuum condition. That sudden drop in air pressure causes the air temperature to drop significantly and can cause humidity in the air to condense on any available surface. While the rest of the engine is quite hot, the air intake can be quite cold.
After running for a period of time, an ice ball can develop on the inside of the air intake; when that occurs, the engine will be incapable of proper operation and can stop running, at which point the heat from the engine will diffuse, warming the intake and melting the ice.
To solve that problem, most vehicle manufacturers use a carburetor de-icing system that basically consists of a tube that runs from around the exhaust manifold up to the air intake. By the time any ice can start to build up on the inside of the air intake, the outside of the exhaust manifold has become quite warm, and any air that passes the exhaust manifold is heated enough to prevent the icing problem.
So the short answer is, make certain that the tube is in place, provided that Renault's used that system.

SOURCE: My BMW 520i starts up

If the engine cranks but fails to fire, the car may be flooding due to a failed temperature sensor. There are several, but the most likely problem would be the water temperature sensor.
If the engine fails to crank when hot, the starter motor is failing and will need to be replaced.

SOURCE: engine turns over but will not start only when engine is warm

my car has the same exact problem!! i have 2 pop the clutch 2 get it started when it is hot. Mine starts great when its cold or hasn't ran 4 awhile but when we are driving around for more than about 20 min in it when we stop it doesn't start at all. it wont even turn over. so i have 2 have my husband push it while i pop the clutch & then it starts & runs fine till the next time we turn it off. its not a battery problem as we'v replaced the battery, & the starter & the alternater are fine as we'v had them tested. hopefully someone that knows & has fixed this problem can answer this mystery problem!! hopefully some1 can :D

Cold starts

What needs to be done is an overnight pressure check of the fuel system. This will verify if air is in system. Sometimes dirty fuel injectors will stay open and fuel will bleed down into the engine. This is bad for the engine because it will thin the oil if that is what is happening.

You may have a rusted out fuel line or fuel filter. The leaks start out small and evaporate before dripping. Later you will have traceable leaks.

There is a "cold start sequence" which uses water temperature sensors to initiate the sequence. It makes the fuel rich, raises idle speed, and then returns to normal after the engine warms up. Some cars use 2 temp sensors, 1 for the dash and 1 for the engine.

Had trouble starting car, negative battery terminal was cracked, replaced that, now it still wont start, it makes a click as i turn on ignition, sometimes it starts straight away other times take a while.

firstly,check that all petrol pypes is tightly fitted and not a loose conection so that the fuel goes back to the tank,then it takes a while for the fuel to get to the engine again

I have a 1997 catera and when i start it sometimes there is a loud noise that sounds like a vacuum coming from the front but it doesnt seem to be coming from the engine what could this be?

That noise is the electric air pump the location is not in the engine compartment but in the front under the bumper this only operate for 1 minute on cold start the purpose is to warm up the catalytic convertor this is a emission device.If the car is already warmed up and you turn off the vehicle and restart it wont come on.Its only for cold start ups.

Mitsubishi Triton V6 lacks power on acceleration

full power is only achieved when the engine is fully warm(operating temp).so if you accelerate more than, say, a third of the gas pedal,the car will feel sluggish.
this is more apparent when first starting the car in the morning in winter.almost like the car is going to stall.
most wear in the engine is leaving it to idle when cold you should always drive the car straight away from cold.then when hot turn on the a/c if required....

Whining engine

It could be a pully bearing going bad, or your power stearing pump. next time you start it when it's cold try moving your steering wheel left to righ and see if there is any changes. The next time try removing your belt before you start it and see if the noise goes away. The belt could be warn out and hard itll it warms up and soften up. Start with a new belt. Good luck
