Default mk1 phase has trouble starting

At this point i have my mk1 saxo for 15 months, it is a 1.6 8v 88hp from 99.

I already have a long time trouble starting.

when i had the car for a couple months my startmotor went kind bad. when i turn the key i heared the startmotor turn but not connect to the flywheel

Since a month or 2 my car has a new issue. Sometimes it does want to start but it seems like the engine is drowing? very hard starting.

Sorry kind of finding this hard to understand, so did you replace the starter motor?

Change starter motor, change battery and spark plugs. All three of these will make a huge improvement.
