Hi all,

I'm probably on the wrong thread here but I can't find anything similar to the problem I have so I hope you won't mind me sticking it in here.

I have a Laguna '51 Sports Tourer 1.8 and it's been very good up to now (18 months ownership). Just recently when starting it will turn over the engine but will not fire up. This happens about one start in six. After it shuts itself down from turning the engine over, it might start first push after, but yesterday it went through the second lot of 'bumps' without starting. It started on the third press of the button. This usually occurs when teh engine is reasonably warm. Usually starts first time when cold.

I had it serviced a few weeks ago with new plugs and air filter etc but it hasn't cured the problem,

Does anyone know or can advise on what it may be?

Many thanks.
