My auto 95 VS V6 turns over for sometimes 30+ seconds when I'm trying to start it cold. When it's warm it starts 9 times out of 10 first pop but is still really good for leaving you stranded outside bottleshops and the like. It's still idling sweet and runs absolutely perfect once it's started. Which makes me wonder (remembering of course than I'm not so mechanically knowledgeable) if it might be an auto idle valve or choke or something similar that's causing it..?

Also an input on how to find/fix the fault would be awesome if possible :)

Thanks in advance.

I'd be doing the starter motor first bro
Also you should never crank a car for more than 10seconds

Well that makes sense. Females logic put me at "but it's still starting mint when it's warm"..
