1.2 Clio Dynamique intermittent starting problem

Hello, first post on forum.

My girlfriend has a Clio 1.2 Dynamique and has been having problems with it starting. I have read other threads mentioning the TDC sensor and that might be the answer. The only thing is that it only really happens when the engine is hot i.e. it will start when cold and will run fine, no lurching or stalling.
but when you have been running around in it for a while, stop and then return to the car it doesn't want to start. The engine turns over and the battery seems to be strong enough but the engine just doesn't want to fire. If you have left it for a while until the engine is cooler it will start no problem

Now, although this still might have something to do with the TDC sensor, I was wondering if it had something to do with the coolant temperature sensor which I have heard can cause these problems.

thanks in advance for any advice given....Willie

Check the TDC first, a quick clean can often cure this type of issue, if that does not work it may be worth looking at the coolant sensor and the inlet air temp sensor
