    Default Clio 2 1.4 off idle throttle lag

    Hi guys,

    My son drives a 2007 Clio 1.4 which has a weird issue that makes it a little difficult to drive sometimes. When taking up drive and applying throttle, it seems to lack response and then picks up and revs like mad because you need to over use the throttle pedal. When moving the car around the yard, it's a constant rev rev rev to keep the engine from bogging down just coming off idle while engaging the clutch to take up drive.

    Driving other than this is fine with no other symptoms.

    I've searched at length and haven't found anyone describing the exact same issue, but similar issues with throttle response generally seem to be caused by the throttle body requiring cleaning. I'm going to tackle this when I have time, but has anyone had the same issue and if so, what was the solution?

    Cheers

    Haven't had this issue on our Clio 1.4 but the potentiometer in the throttle pedal itself has worn out on other cars I've had & the UK forums seem to mention this as well as the engine bay throttle to pedal loom wiring breaking down. Maybe try your luck with a pedal from the wreckers if they are indeed fly by electrical wire on the 1.4?

    I have a pedal from a 1.6 2003 Clio if you're after one.

    I may even the throttle body, it may be the same as the 1.4.

    Hi guys,

    Jech, the loom issue is more the 1.2 i think; it has different injection than the 1.4 and 1.6. I'll obviously have a look though. If a cleaning of the throttle doesn't work, I'll have to consider the pedal issue.

    C.lees, I'll keep that in mind, thanks.
