Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi I have a opel corsa 1.4is 2001 model. I have  a
pain in the butt problem with my car. In the
morning or when ever during the day when I try to
start my car it cranks very long and then eventually
starts and runs rough for a while then starts to
clear up and runs perfect can smell feul as if its
overfeuling. Have no performance problems while
driving. I replaced the cambelt,crank sprocket
(keyway_crank pulley) feul pump(bosch) feul
pressure regulator. I am sure the timing is correct.
Also replaced the temp sensor under coil. Tested
the air flow meter and so on. No vacuum leaks.
Anyone please help.
