Hi all bought another Clio after selling my 172 over a year ago. Been looking for a while but this come up cheap been stood a while advertised as head gasket gone, thought nice little project. Here are some pics of it .

Got her home and treated to a wash

Paintwork didn’t come up to bad . Just could do with a machine polish on my to do list .

Looked into the head gasket issue . Vehicle was misfiring but started ok . Carried out compression test all above 150 psi on a cold engine. Didn’t run the engine for to long as belts were overdue and aux belt was badly deteriorated . Traced the fault to a dodgy injector lucky enough had one in my garage from previous 1*2 .

Good save.

The half naked chap, seems a bit camera shy and nosey at the same time?!?.

Head gaskets never go on these so was always going to be something different. They must have taken it to a rather inexperienced garage! An injector is the best result by a mile!

The old girl got a bit of love today , fitted n/s wing just been painted as you can see in the first pic being stood in the sun destroyed the lacquer . Also gave the headlamps a polish not the best but will do. Will give them another go when she road worthy .

Just an update funds are non existent at the moment holiday to pay for . So just a bit of tidy up carried out , front door trims and bullets fitted and gave the seatbelts a good clean Hopefully get the
belts done before winter and sort my garage out so can put it away for winter
