My beloved old Scenic 1, year 2000, has a strange issue:
It struggles on cold start, around 2-3 times of retries, then I can drive it for around 20-30 min where suddenly engine cuts off.
If i'm trying to start the car again, it starts but it's accelerate by itself 3-4 times and dies.
It will start and work ok only after 2-3 hours.

Oil/filter must be change also the glow plugs as suggested by a mechanic.
Not sure if the acceleration cable is loose, but I had it broken/replaced 3 times :)
Any tips please?
