    Couple of problems

    Wonder if anyone could help here, first off when the car is cold, it starts first turn, but when its hot, it takes 5+ turns, any idea what could be causing this? Also, when the car reaches about 2000rpm it hesistates for half a second or so, any ideas on the cause of that?

    Any help much appreciated, thanks in advance

    Don't know about the hesitation problem but the starting problem is likely to be caused by a dickie starter motor. This is a very common problem with this model and can only be fixed by a replacement unit.

    Sorry Kenzie, don't know the answer to that. There are loads of threads on this forum and others about the problem so, if you have the time, have a trawl through and see if they can help. Good luck !
