another starting problem

i drive a renault clio grande 1.2 petrol, 1999
i also had starting problems i went through every thread on the problem and tried every solution, TDC sensor new key but still joy. finally i gave it over to a friend who is a mechanic and left it outside his home for 5 days and it started first time everytime! i was so angry but we came to the conclusion cause i live in an apartment and have an underground parking space that is on a slight tilt it might be that so i have left it on the street ever since and starts first time now. so i hope this post might answer someone else who has tried all other solutions. anyone know why this might be the case with my car?? why would underground/ tilted car park space make it not start?????
