Is this an 8V, 16V, turbo on non-turbo? Guessing you have 16V n/a w/LH 2.2, but some of this applies http://220.127.116.11/engine_folder/nostart24.htm Inspect wires, connections & grounds for corrosion, looseness, dirt, oxidation Ck your Hall Sensor. If turbo, ck your overpressure switch Next time no-start, use a timing light on each of the leads to see if you're getting a flash (power for spark). If spark, jumper hot side of fuse socket #27 at main fuse box to fuse socket #30 to see if fuel pump runs How is driveability otherwise - any other symptoms?
