    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.

The mass air flow sensor is probably the issue.if the check engine light is on,have it scanned by mercedes or a shop that knows the car well.The newer ones have a electronic gas pedal,and when it goes,the car loses power,but it will set off the check engine light.The idle air control valve can cause idle issues,but will not usually affect top end power.

Just replaced my fan clutch 5 days later the enginge light came on. The engine will rev up then come back down. Any ideas?

Check to make sure that the electric fans are working. The computer will increase engine rpm to draw more air in attempting to increase air flow through the radiator as the engine temp increases unchecked. Also make sure the system is full and the the radiator is not obstructed either externally (leaves etc) or internally.

My renault does not start( Management light)

big problems ,firstly its a renault which means problems with anything electric and factory immobilisor.Secondly encrypted software so i can honestly say that no doubt the fault is with one of the early type of ECU computers and unless you rewired the whole electronic system which i have done on a clio that went like this ,then its dealer only and pay through the nose,or trade the vehicle on plan new for old and get yourself 2000€ for it against a new vehicle
