Wont start below 65 degrees all summer runs fine as long as temp above 70 degrees

Cold start sensor is defective and not enriching the mixture for cold weather start. Its usually in the inlet manifold/water jacket and works the ECU until the air/water temp has reached a pre determined point.

Sluggish ignition start

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!

What should the charging volts be on my 2007 Dodge Sprinter V6 Diesel when the engine is running?

Do you have any indication that the battery is not being charged properly, such as slow cranking speed when trying to start?
With the engine not running, the battery (fully charged) should show about 12.5 volts with a voltmeter. With the engine running at normal (not idle) speed, the voltage should be 13.5 - 14.5 volts depending on the state of charge of the battery. At idle, the voltage may drop below 13.5 volts depending on how many accessories you have turned on (headlights, a/c, blower motor, radio, etc). If the 12.8 - 12.9 volts you referenced is at idle with accessories on, but increases when you increase engine speed, you're probably OK.

2006 AWD LINITED, 47000 miles 4 times in the four and a half years I owned this car it started very hard, turned over slow and stumbled to a start, garage kept, no engine light, no code, dealer checked...

A slow cranking condition can be caused by resistance in the ground or return portion of the cranking circuit. Check the voltage drop in the ground circuit as follows:
  1. Connect the multimeter positive lead to the starter motor housing (the connection must be clean and free of rust or grease). Connect the negative lead to the negative (-) battery terminal.
  1. Engage the remote starter switch and crank the engine. Read and record the voltage reading. The reading should be 0.2 volt or less.
  1. If the voltage drop is more than 0.2 volt, clean the negative cable connections at the battery, the body ground connections and the starter ground connection. Retest.
  1. If the voltage drop is greater than 0.2 volt, install a new cable. If the voltage reading is less than 0.2 volt and the engine still cranks slowly, install a new starter motor.

1990 oldsmobile 88 no crank, no start. lights & radio work fine. eventually after 30- 40 min it will turn over & start. problem just started in cold weather i.e. below 20 degrees -coincidence???

Have the battery tested at the local auto parts dealer. you may have a dead cell. the radio and lights will work fine because they do not require that much voltage. The colder it is the harder it is on the battery and the more juice the process will require. At the same time the battery will have less to offer the colder it gets. If one of the cells is dead you are not going to have enough power to turn that frozen engine over.

2000 VW Beetle will not start in cold, runs fine above 40 degrees

I was just reading the owners manual for my 2000 beetle and it says the diesel fuel has a problem with the wax separating from it below 40 degrees. Put the car in a warm garage and it will start.

Cold starting problem

How old is your Battery? at the Temp. Stated above an Older Battery even though Good may not have Enough Cold Cranking Amps Left to Kick her Over.
