Hi I've had a starting problem with my astra 1.7. When I try to start it, it cranks for a while then turns on. Sometimes it doesn't turn on even if it has been driven for a bit. I think its draining the battery when it cranks because when I jump start it, it start's fine. Anybody know what's causing the problem.

Most likely your starter motor is tired & needs replacing , a common fault on this engine when encountering starting issues.

Or the battery is coming to the end of its life. A free battery test at Halfrauds or elsewhere could be your next step.
If you have a multimeter you could do a voltage drop test while cranking.
