Mu 02 1.6 also has this problem, fairly infrequent but identical symptoms. So with dad and mechanic friend decided to take out the ecu and give the terminals a clean as suggested, all went well, neither the ecu pins or the connectors looked too bad although we did find some blue gunky stuff on a couple of them ( felt like silicone). Anyway put it all back together and - nothing- car won't start, checked connections again and all seem in place and ok, any ideas what we've done wrong?

Sorted! Don't know what we did but we realised we couldn't hear the fuel pump when we switched the igntion back on, wiggled & pulled relays and fuses, put them back and she started first time.
I took some photos of the ecu and connectors, if it would help anyone thinking of doing this I'll happily put them up but might need guidance as to where on the forum they should be.
