The sensors are prone to clogging with dirt and ice. The only suggested solution other than replacement is to periodically blast the sensor cavities with a high pressure stream of water at a car wash then allow them to drain and dry. My RSS comes and goes on a whim

Most likely in this severe weather the fluid and the bands in the transmission need time to circulate and warm up. It is a good idea in severe weather to allow a vehicle to warm up for at least 4 - 6 minutes before driving it. Remember that oils and lubricants get very thick in cold weather.

without my greasy hands under the bonnet its hard to say but dont be scared of it just because it say ferrari on the front its still made by fiat and uses a lot of common parts ,now what i would do here is to test the mass air flow sensor with my automotive tester to see what happening and if the voltage is varying as it reved up before i start to even think about changing anything ,if this sensor is faulty then its not measuring the right air flow which will not allow petrol to be injected through the injectors hence its not picking up and i think it may be the cold weather thats affecting the sensor in some way ,remember warming up the engine will not make the sensor warm as it still has cold air being drawn in through the inlet pipe

During cold weather the engine runs fine but during warm weather the engine dies


Could be a problem with your intake air temp sensor or your coolant temp sensor. The most likely would be the coolant temp sensor. It may be reading cold and will make it run good as the engine is cold but as it warms it is not adjusting the air fuel ration to the proper levels making it run rough hot

Your coolant sensor may be stuck in advanced timing mode. Change it & the engine will start easy in cold & warm weather. The sensor is located near the thermostat housing. Remove the electrical connector & unscrew the sensor. Replace but do not over tighten, 5ft. lbs. Top off any antifreese loss. Good luck!

1998 Catera will not start if it sits overnight in cold weather


It can be worn distributor cap/rotor or coolant temperature sensor.
To check it leave car outside, try to activate if it is not use the hair fan and worm up the distributor cap area

If it helps replace the distributor cap/wiring/spark plugs. If it doesnot help warm up the coolant temperature sensor:
http://www.autozone.com/shopping/repairGuide.htm?pageId=0900c15280090338
and, if no help, spurk plug area.
Also good idea in cold weather use higher octane fuel or regular with octane booster or injectror cleaner added and ask the mechenic to put winter oil (less viscous) for winter time during oil change.
Good Luck

2001 Dodge Caravan SE 2.4L.. In cold Weather it starts then stalls and dies...?


Inlet air temperature sensor, also known as throttle body temperature sensor, will do that. Don't go changing TPS, or IAC, as suggested in other post. If they work good in warm weather, they should do the same in cold. Air inlet sensor tells system how much fuel to deliver according to temperature, as engine needs more fuel the colder it is when starting.
