Warm start problems

We've got the warm start problems on our 99 1.2 Clio.

I've found the TDC sensor and will give that a check, however there are no warning signs on the dash. I've also been advised that it could be 'tight' valve tolerances.

I'm trying to weigh up whether it's worth the hassle of checking the tolerances, because if that's the problem then it's cheaper (for parts) than a faulty TDC sensor, however it's also quite a bit of faff to adjust them (according to the Haynes joke manual.

It's not too pressing a point at the moment, coz it's up on axle stands - I've also got to replace the front offside suspension spring and maybe wheel bearings ...
