Hadn't started my car for about 5 days yesterday, went to turn it on yesterday and it's not running. I'm wondering whether it's the cold weather we've had recently.
Things I notice on my Clio 172:
- Fuel pump isn't priming
- Immobilizer light is turning on and then going off like...
this is the culprit on further looking though i found this

I had and 'alarm code' car security system, I took it off and put back the original car wiring, near the driver they cut off the fuel pump + wire and connected it to an external relay, I fixed the original wire to the original connector, but now the fuel pump dosent work, but if I...

I've been thinking about this every time it happens,
when i'm nearly out of fuel and the needle is just touching the red line but the fuel light hasn't come on yet,
the trip computer says I can do another 40 miles before i'm totally out of fuel, 40 miles is like £10 quids worth of fuel in my...
The other day my 2000 1.6 Clio came to an unexpected halt. First thought was TDC sensor so out it came and a quick clean up (it didn't seem to be dirty) and off we went again - for about 100 yards. Same again, engine died.
I got my brother-in-law to give me a tow home (well I've got him out of...
Anyone had any experience with an rstuner?
Done a few data logs and trying to find my air fuel ratio plotted against rpm's what parameter should I be toggling 02 sensor? Which one? Puzzled here lol.
Looking to get a general idea of how much you guys spend a week on fuel on the 172/182s?
Keeping in mind I'm more on about social/domestic use fuel rather than traveling to work&back a week?
Reason I ask as I have now owned my 1.4 for 2 years now. I've established I'm heavy footed and £10...
Can anyone tell me what spec fuel pump I would need for a 1.6 8v clio. I'm picking up parts for my autograss build and wanted to make sure I got a pump that's man enough for the job.
What psi and flow rate would I need?
Cheers in advance.
No kidding... Universal plastic fuel cap for £207.50... 5 Sold! Must be full of platinum lol
Ive had this problem crop up on the last two trackdays now, roughly around the same millage into the day with half of tank burned.
In short what happens is the car suddenly without warning looses power and cuts out (if you dip the clutch). Literally like the fuel supply gets cut...
So I was driving las night then the car came to a sudden stop, had a nosey around and noticed there is no fuel going into the filter, the primer bulb looks as though it's been squeezed in and won't release back out.
Ordered a new primer bulb but does
Anyone know what else it could be?
Past week i have noticed a strong fuel smell in the cabin, ill just bullet point what i know so far.
Strongest smell is when pulling off, cruising i cant smell anything
car wont start first time when cold, usually a prime of the key it will fire up straight away. When warm, it fires...
Does anyone know the location of the fuel filter on an 07 clio campus 1.2 16v (if that helps). I have read multiple other posts but all of them are for older models! Also, I purchased a fuel pump from euro car parts using my number plate and I believe I have been given what some people are...
every time I exit the car I can smell fuel. And each time I act like a dog and sniff it out its coming from the fuel cap.
I open the flap and the smell is mighty strong, this is still the case after I have washed the area very well.
The cap is screwed on... any idea why I can...
I've got a Race Tech Dash 2 digital display in my car, it's been in a while now but only just got round to setting up the fuel guage. The instructions say you have to wire in a pull up resistor for the 5v reference so I used a 1k resistor but I don't seem to be getting bugger all...
Filled my car up today and driving along i could smell a strong smell of petrol. Thought nothing of it but when i got out the smell was stronger. Quick look under the car and there is fuel on the outside of the tank and over the back axle. Are there any common faults that would cause this? Ill...
Car cut out on me yesterday morning (An ongoing issue I'm trying to get to the bottom of) However upon restarting this time, the fuel light came on. Fuel gauge showing 1/4 tank. Stayed on despite several normal restarts that day.
This morning I had another cut out, restarted (takes a few...
I have removed my swirl pot/pump/filter from my car so it dont stink. I just don't need it. (Prob for sale?)
Anyway I have issues, the pump in tank is noisey? Prob normal?? Uprated one in tank from evo. (Rated 500bhp) and if I am lower than 1/4 tank I am not getting the fuel .
Anyone want to...
so I'm seeing at most 26 MPG no matter how grandmaish I drive.
With a heavy foot it's 22 and below.
The timings are fine as they were checked again by garage, they spot on and I agree considering how the car performs.
Does anyone know what to check next? I don't think there is...

Hi there. This is my first post with my first car so apologies if I'm a little vague with my information :)
I recently bought my first car - An 04 Clio Authentique 1.2. I was advised by my friend with the same car that he put approximately £20 per week of fuel and he drives every day. I bought...
