Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Good day all.
Really need some advice.
My bakkie,Corsa 1.7diesel(with A/C) is having
problems to start,charged the battery up and put it
back still same problem.
Put the battery in a Isuzu KB and it started fine.
Took it for a test and the auto elect told me its the
alternator another tells me its the starter.
I cant find the starter on the bakkie,only have the
bakkie for 3wks or so, so not clued up as yet where
everything sits as yet.
Please help as to how i can check and what i can
check to find the fault.
I push start it and it starts immediately and quickly
but another guy told me its my bushes on my
starter thats finished.
I think its a 2001 model from what i was told

I'm having the same problem. Corsa Bakkie 2002 model 1.7D. Won't start after standing for a while but start's immediately every other time and starts quickly with a push start. Is there someone out there that can offer some advice ? I'm desperately seeking answers.

Had the same problem but I got a guy to fix my starter and you need to warm THE glow plugs before you start the car. FIRST WARM YOUR PLUGS for 5 minutes
