'98 Clio with ignition issues !

Hi everyone,

This is my first thread after finding your very helpful forum. I've searched for my problem and can't seem to find it anywhere, so I hope I'm not repeating anyone.

My 98 Clio 1.4RT has developed a ignition problem. At first, it began with the Clio not liking if you tried to start it by turning the key straight to start, it started to prefer a few seconds on ignition, then to start, and has been starting like that first time for months.

But now, if said Clio has been driven around for a few minutes (about 10minutes this morning), parked up, then you try to start it again it's hit and miss whether it starts again, which is getting quite annoying in petrol stations for instance.

Whereas if the car is left at my work for 8 hours, it starts first time.

Has anyone got any suggestions as to whats faulty ?

Thanks in advance
