Hello, I have a clio 1.4 RXE Auto 1999V and only 50,000 miles

Customer Question

Hello, I have a clio 1.4 RXE Auto 1999V and only 50,000 miles it drives great and the gearbox works perfectly, however, when the car is cold and I drive approx 2 miles the box goes into safety mode. When I stop and turn the engine off the car is perfect again and will not play up untill it is left to get cold...Seems as if when the auto choke goes off it sends the car into safety mode . What should I do ? Thanks.

Hello and Welcome to justanswer...

My name is MIKE - Im happy to help you with this...

Im afraid the prospects are not too good - this is a fairly common issue...

I do just need to ask though at this point - have you had any plug in diag tests done as yet - and if so, what are the results of that?

Hello Mike, a mechanic friend did a test and found no faults but said I would probably have to have a Renault dealer test..I am trying to avoid this because they probably just say it needs a new gearbox and I find this hard to believe because the car drives so well.
