engine turning over but wnt start

hello

lately when i try to start my car i get nothing. what happens is the engine is turning over but its just not starting. however after a couple of tries it will start, and on a cold morning it will take about 30mins of trying before it starts. i have checked my spark plugs, and dizzy cap and rotor both have a little bit or wear but look fine. i have also replaced the ignition coil and nothing has changed. now i kinna think its my starter but im not hearing clicking noises, and wouldnt my car not be turning over if it had a bad starter???? i think that when i try several times to start it i am actually warming a certain part up and onces its warm my car starts fine. SOO what part would this be????

Re: engine turning over but wnt start

Replace your rotor in the dizzy and the cap. Your starter is fine, if it was bad it wouldnt turn over itd just click.
Have you done a compression test?
