I have a similar problem with 1997 1.3LS, due to the fuel pump operating intermittently at start up. How to tell? With radio off and in as quiet a spot as possible, turn on the ignition, BUT NOT TO TURN OVER THE ENGINE. You should hear the faint click of a relay operating, followed immediately by the 'buzz' of the fuel pump for about 1 second. With my fiesta, if that happens, it starts first time. If the relay clicks but is not followed by the buzz of the fuel pump, then it will not start however long I try for. Go back to it a few hours later and it starts! What I have noticed is the problem is more frequent when it's cold.

Cheers John
