It could be caused by numerous thing. I would start by checking the spark-plugs. Make sure they are correctly gapped and if worn or damaged replace them. If that doesn't help then check your air and fuel filters. If it is still hard to start then you will need to start checking things like the fuel pump, coil packs, and maf sensor.


VX commodores were plauged with fuel pump AND fuel gauge problems First.. if yur gauge is at 1/4 or less , Top up with 10-15 litres of CLEAN fuel Second ... have the fuel pressure checked by an experianced person hope this helps


ecotec v6 - crank but no start, look at the crank angle sensor. common issue
