we have a 2000 scenic, 1.4, was driving us crazy with an intermittent start problem. Every morning it would start no problem, but if we tried to start it after it had been run, even up to 2 hours later it would act the maggot. Usually had to wait up to 10 minutes before it would kick over.
Our local mechanic was puzzled, his diag equipment showed no faults
Anyway, did a quick google and found this forum, had a look at this thread and gave it a go, I removed and cleaned the
with isopropanol cleaning fluid, and so far touch wood no problems
I know that cleaning it may be a short term fix but at least I'll know what part to replace if the problems return.
Currently in skibum's garage:
