Problems starting my Matiz
I am having problems when I start my car on a morning when its been wet and cold, or standing more than a day.

It sometimes either makes like a vibration feeling and then stops, or sounds as if it's struggling to start and then it does and drives alright. When I stop driving and switch off and restart its ok.

Damp. Change plugs, leads and coils.
