Mainly directed towards "BobRTE", as seems very knowledgable, but also anyone else!! Does the ecu update just increase the tickover of the car? Mine ticksover quietly etc, would the update affect this? In addition, I have had my Clio (1.2 16v 2001) in to renault twice over the engine. When the revs are around 3100, there is a very slight dip in power, sort of slight hesitation before continuing. They are unable to do anything as they can not reproduce the feeling, wondered if you had any ideas etc that I could put to them, or if you had come across anything similar. Are there any probs you know of with this engine that are worth getting looked at etc before the warrenty runs out. Have just done 12000 miles, about to do 2nd oil, filter change, was really dirty at 6000, lots of particals in the oil!
Thanks very much for any advice,
