    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 !
