New to the forums after recently purchasing a used 2001 Scenic Dynamique 1.6

(Have also driven a 4, a 12, an 18, a 21 and a Megane in the past, so I'm nothing if not brand loyal).

Is this the same non-starting problem you get when the engine is hot? The usuer manual encourages me to sit, in a zen-like calm, until the engine cools sufficiently and air bubbles in the carb dissolve to start again. Will cleaning the TDC sensor work for this?

Edit: Thanks for the advice in other threads, will have a go on the TDC later this week.
