Proton savvy amt sometimes starts and other times does'nt.
Play with the spark plugs leads and sometimes it starts, pump the accelerator because I think the fuel is not entering it sometimes starts. My problem persist until the battery get low and flat.

Did you check for trouble codes? When it could not start, you need to be checking to see if ignition sparks are available.

This problem is a common one and comes with the engine. Renault D4F 1.2 16v. Crank sensor. Take it out. Give it a clean with some white spirit and give the connector pins a clean with some electrical contact cleaner. Then refit and you should be ready to go.
