    if you have it running for a bit and turn it off does it start first try if you start it straight up? and how long do you have to wait before it will struggle again?

    You need to scan it as stated you will be pissing in the wind and have people telling you to replace this that and the other, it could be a simple fix I.e sensor

    At a complete guess I'd say it could be a crank position sensor.

    Again, best thing to do is get it scanned.

    to check the starter you need to see how fast it cranks the engine as it needs to be at a certain speed not sure if the snapon machine will show all that!

    ps you have a pm :)

    when you say it doesnt start
    can you explain what its doing ?
    does it click ?
    does it turn over ?
    are all the dash lights on ?
    does it start then die in 1 2 seconds ?

    so it doesnt turn over you just get a little click? and after a few turns of the key it will fire up?

    if that is the case then forget my pm it is the starter mine did it not so long back

    Scanned wont help you then lol.... Start by checking your voltages. 1, battery 2, down at the starter on the small wire with the key being turned this will then tell if your getting the voltage to this point if you are then scrap the starter

    I don't know the part number for that I don't have etka on my laptop no more so cant get the number

    yeah the coolant sensor is the green 4 pin one you will need a new clip and seal too as the clicp will probably break when you take the old one off
