Problem starting when cold but fine when hot..

Recommended Posts

Problem been developing over the last couple of weeks...sometimes bad, sometimes fine but it's definately got worse in the last few days.

When the car has been stood for say over an hour or overnght it struggles to start, taking 5-10 seconds of turning over until it starts then it briefly sometimes sounds lumpy...

Once the car has run it'll start no problems..

New starter motor about 10k ago

New Battery similar

New plugs and leads

Original coil pack re-fitted about 6 weeks ago as the newer replacement one packed in.

No fault codes

Its a 97 VR with 115k on.

I only do about two 5 mile runs per day.

I'm possibly thinking the battery could be shot due to the constant stop starting?

Any other suggestions as of where to look?
