If you havent inspected the spark plugs to see if they are fuel fouled this should be done.If an issue is found with the spark plugs I would try to clean and dry them and see if it starts and runs then.If this is or was already checked and found o.k. let me know so we can continue.

Thank you for your response Me Pete. The car starts now the order of the cables was wrong. But in the morning it takes time to start. It does not start on single ignition as it used to do initially
Expert:  Peter Zavarelli replied 10 months ago.

Your welcome

The longer start time can be due to a fault with the fuel system with a component like the fuel pump or fuel filter in some cases.If you have not had the fuel system tested this should be done to see if any issues are found.

Let me know if you need anything else and feel free to rate my help here as this is how I receive credit for my time.Your 5 star rating is appreciated

Thanks Pete
