    1.2 Clio Dynamique 2004 is giving me an absolute nightmare!

    the engine Mgmt light keeps coming on and we still cannot find the issue.

    Codes were read and they showed a problem with the 4th cylinder. So all the plugs were changed as were the leads and still the problem is there.

    It doesn't seem to matter how you try to fix the fault code showing it is not working.

    The light stays on until the car is warm and it judders and sounds like it is choking which is starting to get a bit frustraing.

    ANyway if anyone could help we would be really grateful.

There is a good chance (amongst other things) that the EGR valve is stuck open. It can easily be removed and cleaned.

However, the engine management light is the way forward. Have a code read done and it will point you in the right direction.

My car wont start! turn key - nothing.doesnt even

You certainly don't sound like a mechanic :>)

The fluid in the gearbox has no bearing on why your car doesn't start.

The most likely reason for this is that you have a flat battery. Put the headlights on, then turn the key to try and start. Do you have any lights or do they dim considerably. If so, you have a flat battery.

If not, it can be many things, but most likely the anti-theft system.

The high revving and lack of power is most likely caused by sensors in the engine, but could be caused by lots of reasons. You need a garage and diagnostic equipment, but first check the battery.

Decreased power

If your truck has a button for traction control you can push it to turn it off. The problem may be a lack of proper air flow. Any auto parts store can seel you a K&N Air Filter to help increase your overall horse power.
