Nissan: 1.8 petrol with 93000m,It..starter motor..miss..idles…

Customer Question
Have a nissan primera 1.8...
Have a nissan primera 1.8 petrol with 93000m,It's the p11-144 model 2002.Normally from cold the car used to start very quickly about 1 to 2 turns of the starter motor but the last 4 months its been taking 5 to 8 turns of the starter motor to fire up and when it does start the car miss fires for a few seconds with the smell of unburnt fuel then idles perfectly.The diagnostic light has never illuminated to say their may be a fault with any of the various engine sensors.Apart from the start ups in the morning it runs sweet as a nut.The only thing i have changed are the spark plugs...Can you help.
Regards
Vince
