Renault 19 1.4e starting problem

My old !988 but otherwise trusty Renault 19 has just started behaving badly. It won't start without extra help. There's a good strong spark and new points and plugs. It will start with a short squirt of damp start into the carb., but that's not a proper solution. It seems to be the fuel injection. Is there such a thing as a low speed jet in this sort of carburretor and could it be blocked - I did almost run out of petrol recently so perhaps sludge in the tank has landed in a sensitive spot? Or perhaps it's the automatic choke? Or maybe there's an electronic blip somewhere?
Any advice from someone who knows about this sort of thing is much appreciated.

Hi not sure???you said you did near run out of juice and with the car being old it probely has picked up soon dirt what about running some carb cleaner through the system to see if the helps in the problem for all the price of it is , i wish i could help more all the best,oh that quick start spray you are using i would stop it to be honest i know that it helps and starts it up but that in my experience it nasty stuff to say the least and not that great for everyday use all the best Donald.
Currently in Donald's garage:
2005 Mercedes Benz C200 Classic SE Kompresser & 1998 Fiat Cinquecento Fire Sporting,some may say i could do far better?,i say i could do far worse.
