Hyundai Sante Fe 2002,
2.0 Diesal
110,000 miles

Hi all
Im new to the forum and hoping someone here may be able to help.
I bought a second-hand Sante Fe in excellent condition and was very happy with it for a couple of months then it developed a starting problem:
When the engine is cold (usually after being left overnight) it just turns over and over and wont start; the only way is using easy start, then once running it ticks over and drives perfectly and starts again once warm.

So I have taken the following steps:

1) replaced the heater plugs - no change

2) Ran diagnostics and this brought up a cam-shaft sensor; replaced this - no change

3) had a local garage pressure test the system and look for leaks; as we assumed by now air was getting into the system when it was sat for a while; after running tests we changed the fuel filter - no change

4) By now we had re-run diagnostics regularly with nothing coming up; fuel pump was a little damp so replaced the fuel pump with a re-con one from reputable dealer - no change

5) Removed injectors and cleaned in sonic bath - no change
After taking all the above steps the dam car still wont start unless I easy-start it which I know is bad long-term!!!
Spoke to local Hyundai dealership today and they don't seem to know either.
There must be a simple solution?
Its going to be an expensive car to scrap and i would be grateful for any suggestions.

Many thanks
