Hi guys, my trusty Renault Clio is turning over but isn’t firing, it’s a 13 plate, never had a problem with it, sometimes takes a while to eventually start but rarely, 59k on the clock, regularly service it etc, any ideas chaps? Many thanks

Lots of possibilities here, you may need to do some basic diagnostics to narrow it down,
Like:
Are the spark plugs firing?
When you take out the spark plugs what colour are the tips, and do they smell of fuel?
So is there fuel going in?
These questions might lead you to possibilities like ignition coil, or crank sensor, or as Ddad says, fuel pump.
Or is there fuel in the tank?!

My daughter had a Megane years back and it went through a phase of not starting some mornings and fine at other times. I'm sure it was some faulty coil packs .... but I'm no mechanic so just working from memory......
