Re: Problems with starting my 2002 Clio II (1.2l 16v)

My clio 1.2 8v 2001 is doing this now. The TDC sensor, coil pack and HT leads were changed last year. I had a head skim and the cylinder head gasket done. Timing belt changed. In the last few weeks, when I turn the engine over, it tries to start, dies back, makes a whirring, clicking sound. I turn the key back and it fires on the second try. It's been recently serviced and has ran better since then but this start problem is persistant. When it does the whirring thing, it resets the clock and the mileometer. Any advice would be greatfully received.
