    Default 2.2 direct sri, sluggish untill engines warm?

    Hi im new to this can anybody help me, i have two faults with my 2004 vectra 2.2 direct sri.

    1. From cold its very sluggish when i accelerate slow or fast untill the engine has warmed up then runs perfectly?

    2. I travel 3 miles to work and if i try to start the car between 1-3 hours after this jurney the car Will only start 2nd or 3rd attempt, if i leave it longer/overnight it starts fine, or within the first hour after jurney will start fine.

    my 2.2 direct petrol Design has a slight , what i can only describe as an " air noise " , going , " put put " or " fit fit " on start up , not loud , but once warmed up a bit , it goes away ...

    does any one elses engine / exhaust on their 2.2 direct petrol make a droning noise like a world war 2 bomber or boy racer exhaust , when excellerating from 2nd to 3rd gear ? ............... i have had suggestion from it being the normal induction sound of the exhaust to it could be the baffles , but i ain't a mechanic to know what it all means ..

    thanks for any help ..

    if i have hi - jacked dj421 's post , i will remove mine , but as we have the same 2.2. direct , i thought any info given we could share ...

    have a nice day .
