Just a quick question to anyone who knows a little about more modern cars, if I may?
Someone near me is selling a 52 plate Renault Clio, it has done around 76,000 miles and is tidy. I am thinking of purchasing it for mother as it will be ideal, small and with power steering and I quite like these Clio's.
It has a problem though it starts but won't idle and cuts out. I was thinking it is most likely to be some sensor as I know in these more modern machines they give all sorts of trouble (we had to replace the crankshaft sensor (IIRC) in our old Megane Scenic as it wouldn't start from hot). The lady selling it seems to think it may be the fuel pump. I am going to view the car tonight.
Does anyone have an opinion on what it is most likely to be? A sensor would be easy and something I can fix myself, the fuel pump would be another matter. I assume it's easy to test the fuel pump as it will be electronic (I assume)!
