Turns over, but doesn't start. Bump starts instantly

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a Hyundai H1 Starex 2003 model with the
common rail diesel engine.

The car started to take a second longer to start
over the summer and then one day at the
beginning of winter it turned over but never fired
up. Thought it was a glow plug problem and had a
garage look at it and they changed the plugs but
the car still wouldn't start. The funny thing is that
the car bump starts instantly every time and runs
fine once it's going. I've had it in to the local garage
but they are stumped and advising me to take it to
a dealer to get the electronics read.

Anyone here had or heard of the same thing so I
don't have to make the 5 hour journey to the dealer
and be stuck for God knows how long away from
home until they can fix it.
