Problem with a RENAULT CLIO 1.2L 1997 92k
Engine cutting out intermittently, suspect fault due to contamination build-up on throttle body and idle control valve.
The fault was cured by removing the throttle body and idle control valve, applying Forté Valve Cleaner to the components and allowing the product to soak for 5 minutes. The vehicle was taken for a road test after refitting the components with the engine performance restored.
