I would change the crank shaft sensor, a well known fault

television has it right, hot starting problem that clears after a period standing and logs no fault code - crank sensor faulty.

it is located at about 10.30 on your belhousing, viewed from rear. they can be difficult to remove on the 112/113 engines but yours should come out ok.
