Clio Starting Problem

Hi I had this problem....

I have a Clio and it had a starting problem. When I start the engine it starts first time. If I go on a short journey it sometimes has a problem starting. The car attempts to start but doesn't fire up, it can then take upto 20 minutes for it to start, then it seems to run fine till it happens again. This seems to be an intermitant fault. The car has had a Battery check and also checks on the Starter Motor, it also had a full service last week so the spark plugs etc are all fine.

I was given advice on Sensors and this was the problem

It turned out the problem was a TDC Sensor and the Wiring Loom which needed replacing so I got it done and the car is fine.
Hope this helps
