2004 1.5dci Not starting - sailorvet
Hi, I own a 54 reg Renault Clio 1.5dci with 79,000 miles on the clock and it just wont start. It's had new glow plugs, new air filter, fuel filter but still wont start. Timing has been checked, all ok. It was stiff starting, sometimes taking up to half an hour but would eventually start, but sometimes on starting it didn't have any throttle response. If you turn the engine with the ratchet at the pulley, it feels as if there is no compression, but I haven't done a compression test as I can't get hold of a tester that will fit this engine. Please help as this is our only car.
