    astra 1.6 8v 2001 starting problems

    hello there just got my car on sunday it runs great nice and smooth but every time i go to start the engine it takes a bit to start lots of ticking over fast but not starting bit annoying once started it runs ok . just the other day the fuel needle was just under the first white line but not sat in the red again i struggled starting then when i put foot down to gain speed it kept jurking down the road like the fuel was running out but when i eased off and just pressed it slightly it went smoothly when i put the fuel in it stopped doing it. the thing is it wasn even near the red zone loke i said. are these 2 problems related you think . any help would be great really worrying when i motorway it everyday please someone help

    Possibly coil pack, blocked fuel lines or filter, cambelt timing, allsorts really, i'd check you're sparking properly and then check fuel's coming through ok first
