    Question Starting

    Hi all, Just joined and hoping for a bit of help. Got a 2001 2.2 SRi and it seems to have problems starting after its been left for a while. Turns over for 10-15 seconds then fires up and runs nicley. If you then turn it off and fire it back up again it starts easily. Have changed the plugs last week and that made no difference. Any one with any ideas?

    Cheers in advnace

    I would take it back m8 and ask them to test it. Hopefully that will sort your problem out.
