intermittent starting fault

hi, i have a 1.6 petrol elx, and keep getting a problem where the car for no reason won start. if left, 30 mins or so it starts. but just recently the injector light has started to come on aswell. sometimes it can run for a few months with out issue, then goes thru spate of not stating, then goes on for a few months again. really annoying.

so a few quesions need answering,
1, how do i solve the intermittent starting problem?
2, why has the injector light started to come on, again intermittently?
3, is this car obd2 compliant as i am looking at buying a code reader/scanner to try and disgnose the problems before spending money on bits not required

this is my partners car and she is a mobile care worker, so it is a major issue traveling from cient to client when the car decides it does not want to start. which means at present she has nicked my impreza to use instead. (all 4 brand new alloy kurbed )

so as you can understand i really need to get the multipla healthy again before my partner destroys my impreza.:worsh ip:

Re: intermittent starting fault

Sounds something like this:

First guess the RPM sensor, according to the two threads regarding intermittent stating fault

Don't know if it's related to the injector light
