Sounds like the cold start sensor has failed. it is on the left side if the throttle body just below the air filter body(right side if you are stood at front of car looking into engine compartment)has a green connector.unplug this connector and carefully shorrt it with a piece of electrical wire i.e.connect the 2 wires together.the car should start normally when cold-this shold prove that the sensor has failed in which case it needs to be replaced.if this does not work it is not the sensor.
do not leave the wire shorting the connector as your car will run with a higher tick over and have less engine braking and there is a danger of short circuit which is potentially dangerous

Heater blowin cold air


Sounds like your heater blend doors aren't adjusting from cold to heat. If you google "blend doors" you can read about them. They are usually pretty hard to get to, the dash needs to come out. Hope this helps! Jonathan Lavezzo www.lavezzoconstruction.com

No heat just cold air


Is the gauge showing the engine is warming up to normal temp ?
Are the heater hoses getting hot ?
If the heater core is getting hot, it could be a blend door problem. The blend doors direct air thru the heater core and the ac evaporator among other things.

First i would check the crank sensor by looking for rpm's on the tachometer or scan tool if you see any rpm's then crank sensor is good.Then check for leaking injectors and if they are not leaking then you will need to check the ECM it may have failed.

5.7 Hemi won't start in cold weather.


Cold weather makes the engine hard to start for two main reasons. First, oil thickens when it's cold, which increases friction and makes it harder for the starter motor to spin the engine. Cold also slows the chemical reaction in the car's battery, reducing its power output. Battery output is usually rated at 77°F, below which starting power drops drastically.

You can ensure that your car will start in the worst weather by keeping the engine or the battery, or both, warm.

You may want to consider a trickle charger for the battery to keep the chemical reaction working and an engine block heater to make it easier for the pistons to move freely.
