Question about 2006 Dodge Sprinter
NEW rebuilt engine from chyrsler.
10,000 miles old.
cold out side 30- degrees.
would not start- took it in and they warmed it up,started right up.
once started runs super no problems.
next day it's cold out, won't start.
cranks over and starts up for a few seconds and then quits.
wait 5 minutes same thing,after 4 tries it semi starts (cough cough cough) until it finally stays started.
if pushed indoors where it is warm 60+ starts right up.
have computer hooked up twice from 2 different dealers and nothing shows up.
no idiot lights on dash board turn on indicating a problem.
one dealer thinks it is glow plugs?
one dealer thinks it is a sticky valve- maybe bad oil was put in?
someone thinks it needs a new coolant sensor?
Glow plug problem.Replace glow plugs with original Bosh. Also make sure glow plug relay box is working which is replaced under battery tray.

Maybe diesel fuel for summer time with no additives in your tank.
This causes the fuel filter to be clogged by flocculent paraffin at low temperatures. If you warm it up, it dissolves and the fuel can pass the filter again. Do not add gasoline to like the old way. It will destroy your high pressure fuel pump and injectors immediately. Try to change your fuel filter and get proper contitioned diesel from your gas station.
The best way is to preheat your engine by coolant or blockheater. This saves much lifetime to your engine and you have ice free windows and warm hands on cold days too. The diesel consumption from the heater also coincides with the fuel economy without the cold start.

Might not be exactly your issue but it's close.
A popular problem with a no start, no crank condition is the failure/locking up of your WCM(Wireless Control Module) also refered to as a SKREEM module (Sentry Key Remote Entry Module). ***You may be able to temporarliy unlock/ reset this by disconnecting and reconnecting the negative battery terminal.*** The condition happens in cold/dry weather conditions and has to due with electrostatic discharge from the ignition key to the WCM (see above). This conditioned is corrected by replacing the WCM $800- $1000 parts & labor:(
This directly ties into the remote keyless entry so use the key only to open and lock the doors. Do not use the key fob. //
