95 Tbird will not start in cold temps, just below freezing
My car starts fine all year untill it gets below freezing then it will not even fire up at all, electric is fine, I think the injectors are flooding the motor up because in a week or so it will start again in warmer temps. This has happened the last few years. Injector overhaul?

what is the temp you are at ? -1-20 check the fuel line is feeding fuel. you may need to take the pipe off and use a syringe plunger see if the fuel can fun free. they put water in fuel ( fuel don't freeze but the water does) and this can freezes and not get through the filter. ice blocks it up. failing that try some easy start. or leave the engine over night with a few blankets over the engine . stops the engine freezing over. some nice thick one's this may help.
Probably starting fine now that the cold snap is over too. I'd guess you have enough water in your gas that as it turn to ice and seperates it is clogging your gas filter. The solution is when the weatherman says the temp will drop tomorrow, drop a can of deicer in the tank and drive around the block before you go to bed. Also add one every time you fill-up if it's below freezing.
I think your mistaken. Your battery will lose cranking power as the temp drops. Warm battery may work just fine, untill it gets below freezing temps then the cranking amps are so low its sluggish. Buy a high cranking amp battery and you will be good as gold mate!
Yes continious cranking of an engine puts a big strain on a starter in any weather, but almost certainly in cold, it takes a lot of amps to turn an engine, It maybe the fuel is starting to freeze?, Maybe it's an electrical issue such as points, plugs timing, distributor cap, rotor arm inside the cap, maybe it's just settings
it might be because the oil is too thick to do its job or you fluids (gas,oil,coolant hopefully not) are freezing try putting a work light under your hood at night and see if the car starts in the mornings. Depending on how cold it gets a worklight used to work for me up near flagstaff az,
you need two things fuel and fire. Check for spark, and remove the fuel filter your gas might have frozen, with all this ethanol **** your getting corn whiskey whitelightning, moonshine its mostly water. water freezes even if surrounded by gas especially when it gets that cold hope this helps.
