|Clio 1.6 RXE not ticking over when cold - aliswan|
Help! Drove my car home on Monday evening - not a hint of anything being wrong with it. Went to drive it yesterday (the following day) and it just would not tick over - had to keep my foot on the accelerator or the engine just died on me. Managed to limp to the garage today and the car was ticking over nicely by the time I got there (about 1.5 miles and a bit of a traffic jam from home). Was hoping that it would be something simple like a temp sensor ( have had this happen before and the symptoms are similar) but the garage have phoned to say that they have been working on it all day are not sure what the problem is. What are diagnostic machines for? They have suggested it could be something to do with the accelerator and is likely to be expensive to repair. Any ideas would be much appreciated. Thank you.
Do you advocate driving an automatic car with both feet?
