    Starting problems

    My 2008 GT Sport is becoming increasingly difficult to start. I've read dozens of post on various forums and found common surefire fixes that include replacing battery, starter motor, coolant temperature sensor, crank position sensor, cam position sensor etc. I'm reluctant to spend any more money on diagnostics so am just putting up with it. But one thing puzzles me. Everyone says the engine must be spinning at least 200rpm to start. Well mine spins well sometimes but doesn't't necessarily start. But if it barely turns over once or twice it is sure to fire immediately after. Why is it so?

    How many KMs on the engine? Perhaps the injectors are wearing out or there is some blockage? Or not enough timing for some reason on start up
