Default 93 2.0 1998 liter petrol starting problem


I hope someone here with experience with this car has a suggestion.

The car was unused for 2 months, after which it was difficult to start (cranking several times). My mechanic put in an injection cleaner and seemed to improve it a bit, but then, after about 100 miles, all of a sudden it wouldn't start at all. It took many cranks and then started. it now takes a couple more times than usual to start, but it starts. Though, I'm afraid the same thing will happen again and drain the battery.

Any suggestions. I have seen here it could be the crank position sensor, but not sure these are the symptoms.

Thanks very much for any advice, it's a shame to ditch such a good car with 120.000 miles because of this (it only cost 1000 pounds. 1300 euro).
