Looking to replace the rear engine mount/ dog leg bottom mount.
1. How do you modify the original one to be more supporting and not get wobbly beyond silicone in the gaps.
2. The one for the automatic gearbox looks way more stable, will it fit manual cars?
My dad and I are looking to rebuild the engine in my 197 soon. All to OE spec.
I'm currently looking for a list of standard tolerances for everything. I've come across R3 specs, but these look to be larger than those of standard road going engines... I'm assuming to cope with the higher heats...
Hoping someone on here can help me as I’m getting ready to blow my brains out with my 182 at the moment!
for the last few months I’ve had a running problem, bit of a dodgy idle and the car just not feeling right! Engine wise the car only has a JMRS induction kit and a scorpion exhaust...
Recently my 2007 Clio Mk3 has been displaying the 'OIL PRESSURE FAULT' message on the dash, as well as the 'STOP' light coming on.
This only happens when driving around corners. I've checked my oil levels on the dipstick and it all looks fine.
Car runs as normal and there's no...
Car is a a 2005 Clio 182.
Driving it down to Dover last week the car was doing strange things. Little bit chicken and egg, as I don't know what was cause and effect...
Driving along, the car would very momentarily stutter. Maybe a misfire, but felt more like a torque-cut...
My 1.2 Mk3 clio has thrown up the oil pressure fault. I've changed the pressure switch which hasn't solved the problem unfortunately, I'm going to change the oil filter in case that's clogged but is there anything else it could be apart from the oil pump?
I was planning on selling the car so...
Please see photographs of a disconnected plug on the front wiring loom on my 2005 182, any idea what it is or where it goes, to be fair the end looks a little broken, it goes into the loom that goes to the alternator & some of the sensors on the engine, any info will be greatly appreciated.
I’ve got this really weird squealing noise under light acceleration / decelerating? It doesn’t do it under hard acceleration and nothing at idle. I’m totally puzzled by it 😂
It was doing this before I fitted my induction kit and ktec decat. I thought it might be an air leak but...
What is the standard rev limiter set at in a 172 cup? I just took mine a blast and it was revving to 8k. As far as I’m aware it’s had no cams or anything either. Anyone know? I don’t plan on going that high again anytime soon 😅
I have recently bought a 2018 Clio 4 RS 220 Trophy with lovely Akrapovic Exhaust.
The car has driven about 26000km. I have noticed recently, that when the oil is about 90-95 degrees celsius (on the R.S. Monitor), I hear a rattling noise from under the hood, above 2800rpm stationary...
Today, myself and my clio had a rough day. Firstly, on my way to work, the exhaust back box mount failed and the whole exhaust fell off. Got that fixed, welded in a new exhaust and that was good... for a total of 15 minutes. I'm not sure if this is exhaust related, I highly doubt...
Bought a clio 2 days ago 2004 1.2 16V
Digital Temperature meter goes max 2 stripes. Cold starts it is on 0 stripes.
Took to mechanic to check Thermostat and Temperature Sensor.
Sensor works. (Tested in boiling water)
Thermostat was cheap so got advised to replace just to be sure...
Hello, I’m new to this forum.
I’ve just bought a 1.1 2008 Renault Clio to get me around while a crash claim I was in gets sorted out. It was off a family friend and was pretty cheap as the clutch was on its way out.
Ive drove the car around 4-5 times, it’s not insured untill September but I’ve...
I recently popped my engine on a track day in my clio 182. I have a replacement engine.
I am looking to see if anyone on here would be able to/or know anyone in north west, preferably close to macclesfield as possible to fit my new engine? Thanks
Hi, my 1.2 engine in my mk 3 went last week, timing belt snapped and bent all 16 valves, I’ve just bought another mk3 1.2 engine with the same engine code as the one that went, Will this just be plug and play, or will I need the ecu to go with it?
Was driving the 182 earlier today when it just lost all acceleration then the engine started to idol its self at between 2500rpm and 3000rpm and the throttle peddle wasn't responding but the throttle its self was still opening and closing each fine time it got pressed just wasn't letting the car...
Been searching the forum but can't seem to figure out what has gone wrong on my 2005 182FF. Recently changed my alternator after it died and all seemed to be going just fine for about a week then today I took her for a spin and I'm sure I felt something go under the car and then could hear a...
Hope someone can point me in the right directions here.
Was driving around yesterday when suddenly EML light came on flashing and car lost power, limp mode as such.
Idles ok when stationary, but when moving off sounds like a Subaru boxer engine with a hint of sewing machine ?
Also the exhaust...
On way home today was driving down the road changed down and rather than revving I heard what sounded one blowing I assumed it was my exhaust or something. But then I noticed check engine light and that the car was Reving it self, then I heard the noise it was making. Sounds a little bit like...
Having engine troubles especially in cold conditions. Engine will be less responsive at times and occasionally stall shortly after startup. The toxic fume warning light now flashes.
Any ideas on a solution?
130k miles, 2001 Clio.
Hi all, recently my 172 has developed an issue around the timing belt area it sounds like a metal scraping noise kind of like a bearing has gone don't believe it is the dephaser but was just wondering if this has happened to anyone else? The timing belt and water pump were done 2 years ago by...
I get a blowing sound every time I press the gas, no matter the rpm. Coming from under the engine cover/back of motor. Anyone have any idea? Have checked for leaks on all hoses u can se without jacking up the car ?
I’m having problems with my 2001 manual Renault Clio. When I turn the engine on and put into gear to move off, my engine won’t rev meaning my car won’t move. When it happens I turn the engine off and on again, and keep having to restart the car until it revs. It doesn’t happen all the time...
As in the title I'm getting a strange metallic sounding tapping noise from the offside of the engine. I've not heard a noise like it before so don't know what to look for, so I was hoping someone might have an idea!
Video shows the noise, it isn't as audible on the near-side of the...
hi, this is the first post I've done on here but I've had the account a while cause its fun looking at peoples build threads to get ideas, but anyways back to the main issue..
a few months ago i was driving back from work and all of a sudden the engine management light started flashing and the...
Hi everyone, I’m a bit stumped with this issue so hoping someone can help!
Got a 2003 172 that I’ve been planning to use for motorsport. Unknown timing belt history and I’ve only had it a few weeks.
Driving it particularly hard today and under deceleration I hear a large metallic rumbling...
