    Could be a crank sensor, the clue lies in the fact it is plying up when warm, this is a comon situation when the inductive coil is breaking down inside the sensor, of course a totally failed crank sensor will give no output and therefore create a no start situation. Your code 0370 does point towards a timing reference signal fault which also points to the crank sensor.

    Just change the crank sensor. The crank sensor measures the position of the crank shaft that sends a signal back to the ECU, if the sensor is not measuring the correct crank angle becuase it is intermittant it will then throw your settings out which confuse the ECU making the vehicle jerk at times when the signal has been lost; I think they are around £30 and worth changing first, you can't test this sensor without the proper equipment I.e a scope to look at the wave form it generates.
