Question about 2001 Dodge Stratus
Have you tried a boost while you are trying to start it... that battery may not have enough power because of the cold.
as it gets colder the effiency of a battery goes down but the amount of power the starter needs goes up.

SOURCE: Car Starts Really Rough.
Check the fuel/air sensor and air filter. When you first start the car only press the accelerator pedal once. If while turning the ignition switch you here a grinding noise that would be your starter going out. The smell of fuel signals that your car is either flooded from pressing pedal or fuel mixture is incorrect. Hope this helps.
