Re: megane 2 1.5dci not starting when warm?

I would definately remove and clean the TDC sensor to start with (details on this are elsewhere on the forum,if you use the search facilty then it should show them up,if you can't find them then get back to us),it's a pretty common complaint on all Renaults unfortunately.If the car cranks over but refuses to start and then decides to start after a few minutes/couple of attempts then this is pretty much a classic TDC sensor problem.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
