Clio starting problems

My G/f has just bought a 6 month old clio but is experiencing a couple of problems...Occasionally when she starts the car, the engine will start but struggle for a couple of seconds, sometimes it will be ok after this but other times it will completely cut out.

Im taking it back to the dealer in a weeks time but would be interested to know if anyone else has had this problem and how you resolved it (if you did)!



Could be a million possibilities - from the really simple to the horrendous and nasty!

Check that the HT leads, distributor, spark plugs etc are correct and in place for starters. Beyond that, things get more tricky

there is a thread about this on one of the previous pages title is cold starting problems , this is concerning the 172 though but the problem could be on other models as well
