Hi all,

Have a 2008 207 1.4 vti. Got some issues where the car is struggling to start and needs a little gas to get it going.

First symptoms i don't know if related was upon start up the car made a loud (grinding?) noise for the first 5-10 seconds at most then disappeared. This happened for about 4 weeks. I put it down to cold weather.

Then a couple of days ago it wouldn't start just turning over and on the 5th or 6th attempt it started and drove fine. Left it 24 hours, started up and drove fine. Then about 4 hours later i tried and it was struggling again as before.

So doesn't seem to be dependent on length of time left, how cold weather has been etc.

I take it first thing is to check the battery?
