I have a 1.2 16v expression which takes several attempts to fire up. Not just 1st thing in the morning, but every time I come to start her up. It does turn over, just won't ignite.

I've read similar posts regarding this problem, the majority suggesting the Top Dead Centre sensor needs replacing. However, many have said they have replaced the sensor and still nowt has changed!

Has anyone ever successfully mastered this art, if so pleeeeaaassseee let me know!! I dont fancy going to Renault to be robbed!

Thanks for listenin'!
Ive got exactly same problem, not all the time but seems to be in the evenings. Now got engine light on. Hoping its not the cat or oxy sensor.
