    My Corsa starts perfectly, its an automatic petrol 2003 plate.
    The only problem is when I go past ignition to (III) to start up, sometimes it takes a while like it makes noises for a bit then it fully starts, either im holding the key for too long before starting it towards the end of the mark of (III) or holding it to less for a bit before pushing the key all the way. It jitters basically.

    Am I starting it wrong, should I just hold the key a bit less then let go, I probably have OCd and think its not starting earlier than it is lol overall the car runs fine.
    So is there a correct way or am i doing it perfectly and just leave it

    Take a video?
