Could well be as Lacken suggests.....is there any pattern to the none-starting - if its only when warm, then it definitely points to the crank sensor. Are there any warning lights displayed - in particular is the code light coming on and going off within a couple of seconds?

If the engine is spinning over normally it definitely isn't your starter, and as your car has either 4 or 6 coil packs depending on whether it is a 4 or 6 cylinder engine (and assuming it is a petrol:lol:), a coil pack failure won't cause a none start - just a misfire.

there is no real pattern to the non starting,just now and again whether the engine is hot or cold?

As RGWM asked are there any lights staying on when it doesnt start or indeed any of the regular ones not coming on ?
And petrol diesel 4 cyl 6 cyl ?
