Part Time Non Starting Problem.
Firstly can I please state that I am in no way an expert in anything vehicular, so please excuse my dumb way of putting things.
My better half currently drives a 2001 Scenic 1.6 Petrol Dynamique.
For the past 6 months it has, (on this only happened every now and again), refused to start. This can happen whether the engine is cold or hot. Sometimes just locking her up and coming back some minutes later could be enough, for it to start up.
Most of the time up to now it stars fine, but in the last couple of days, it has become a bit more regular.
I'm not sure if these things store fault codes, and if they give any kind of warning that they are storing codes, but there are no flashing lights on the dash to tell me there’s a problem.
I'm loathed to take this to a main stealer and have them plug it in, find no faults, then start replacing things willy-nilly, until they happen across the correct part. That could end up costing a small fortune.
So, boys and girls, can anybody give me any guidance, as to what the problem may be?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
