Hi Stephen

Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I am a fully qualified vehicle technician with over thirty years in the trade, you have not mentioned the year of your Skoda or the milage but the first and most likely thing to change would be the fuel filter, an intermittent problem such as this is very often due to a clogged up filter and the debris can settle and then allow a flow again.

The fuel filter on your Skoda should be under the vehicle just in front of the petrol tank, it is quite easy to replace provided the securing bolt isn't rusted.

Given the time between the problems you have had I would certainly make this a first move.

I hope this answers your question but do please feel free to ask any further details by replying to this thread.
