I've had one fail on all three of the Mercedes I've owned and on the Clio.

In all four cases they'd fire OK from cold but wouldn't re-start from hot.

It's a cheap repair.
agreed. take the TDC sensor off and clean it, pop it back on and see how it goes. if still no joy then yes replace it, ebay the part.
