Question about 2006 Chevrolet Aveo
My car will not start when the temperature reaches below about 10 below.
I replaced my battery with a cold crank battery, and the battery does crank just fine.
When the temperatuer warms up, the car starts right up. However, the engine light stays on until I start the car again the next day.
I live in Minnesota and this is a real problem in the morning when I need to leave for work. I live close enough to walk to work, but in 25 below with our wind here it's a bit much!
Can I put it in while the car is cold be cause that my issue my car has been sitting for 2 days and won't start. I didn't have this issue during the summer. Will the dipstick help in my case

Go to an auto parts store and get an electcic dipstick heater . remove your oil dipstick after parking car for the night.install electric dipstick preferrably while engine is still hot plug it in at night .this will
help keep the oil warm and also the block after car starts unplug heater remove it and install original dipstick. this is the easiest to install but there are also block heaters
