Petrol Espace starting problems

Hi all

Just found this site hope someone may be able to offer some advice.
I own a 1991 2ltr inj RXE Espace. I have been having starting problems for a while now which seem to be getting worse, when the engine is cold it takes four our five times to start, I have changed the plugs, leads,battery,distributor cap and rotor arm but to no avail. if the engine does start first time it normally sputters and upon touching the accelerator pedal cuts out. The next time i try to start the engine the starter motor is turning but there appears to be no spark. Then when i try again the engine will start and idle fine, i have just about lost all my hair on this one any ideas?
Currently in Trevor M Boulton's garage:
