I am currently having an intermittant starting problem. The engines sometimes turns over, tries to start but immediately dies. The engine management light illuminates but as yet I haven't interrigated it to see what it says.

Any ideas anyone for me to start some investigation.

Thanks.

If the check engine light is on have the codes pulled first.

I had a very similar problem - it took months to figure it out. It turned out to be a faulty immobilizer, i.e., the system that detects that you are using the proper keys to start the car and not trying to hot wire it. Replaced the immobilizer + new keys and haven't had the problem since.
