Hi There,first post on here.  I have a Vauxhall Combo 1.7 D Which starts perfectly first time every morning when engine is cold. If I switch engine off and start straight away, again no problem. However when the van has been sitting for about half an hour to an hour starting becomes a problem and the engine turns and turns for about 10 to 20 times before it fires, when it's doing this I turn the key to off wait a second and try again, which helps and will start after 4 or 5 turns which is still pretty sluggish. Any suggestions much appreciated.
