I just purchased my 2G with the 1.8 yesterday and I went to start it this morning, when I turned the key all the way it tried but then it died, then when I tried to start it again the starter ground on the flywheel, so I turned the key all the way, tried again and it started up with no problems except a slightly rough idle, I don't have much field practice working on cars other than 3 semesters at my community college so I'm not exactly sure what to check. If anyone has any suggestions that would be extremely helpful.

So, you fixed the ground for the starter?

Could be an old battery, or you can check the distributor - take the cap off and look at the rotor and the contact pins, if they look burnt up, that could be it. Spark plugs. Check the grounding wires around the engine. Fuel filter. Easiest and cheapest routes.
