Question about 1997 Infiniti.5 J30

My Infiniti J30 sputters a lot when I try to start it in cold weather. It starts just fine in the summer, but in the middle of the winter, it sputters a lot and doesn't start for a long time. What can I do to make it start every morning?

Engine knocks when cold


is this even in summer time, or has this just started occuring since winter got here... if its since winter got here, its perfectly normal to hear the valves clatter when the engine is cold.... if it knocks in summer time also, you have something a little more serious goin on, could be rods, could be the mains, could be both rod and main bearings, lifters, scarred cam... but being this new of a vehicle, id say its just a clatter from the lifters being in cold weather.. hope this eases your mind a little

You can try insulating your battery (cold might still get thru) or purchasing a solar recharge kit from an aftermarket company. Cold weather will affect the chemical reaction between the plates of the battery and will not put out the high amperage required. I would also recommend to keep a portable battery booster in case you cant get a solar charger. Keep the booster in a warm bag inside your trunk and always charged for when this happens. Keep it during the duration of your winter weather. In summer you will be fine.
