Have you check the plugs, cables, cap/rotor ?

One thing you can try since it starts good in warm weather, is to ,on a cold morning, take a hair dryer and warm up the suspect part to warm weather condition. Then try and start the car. If it start ok you have probably found the weak part.

My car will not start in cold weather. i have change the plug wires and all the plugs. IT wasn't like this but now is getting worse expecially in the morning after the car has been sitting for over night....


I live in the snow belt and have had the same problem for two years. Car runs and starts fine in the summer but starts giving problems when it gets cold and damp. After having it diagnosed with no problems indicated, then having the plug wires, plugs, etc. replaced, I discovered that if I put the key in the ignition, turn it two clicks and leave it for several minutes it will start and run fine. When it's just cool and damp, it may only take 2 mins. but the colder the weather the longer it takes. At 9 degs. it took about 20 mins. Hope this helps. It's a very expensive and frustrating problem that no one seems to know anything about.

My 2006 Jaguar X type will not start readily in cold weather. I replaced the glowplugs but no difference. Once going it runs fine.


Maybe worth having the battery checked out as cold weather can make them deterioate quite quickly.

The battery might be be loosing cca's (cold cranking amps) but still have good voltage.

My mercedes e300 (1989) starts and runs ok but then cuts out.


I had a similar problem with my 1986 300e , which got progressively worse until the car was no longer driveable, I changed out the fuel pump relay and the problem went away.

perhaps you need a new cap and roter a new spark plug wire set. they don;t like moisture. also check to see if you have any broken or leaking vacuum hoses. the worse case senerio would be that your head gasket is leaking--at cold temps a little antifreeze will enter until everything warms up and it seals shut due to metal expanding. but since you say it's cold weather only--this probably wou;dn't be the case. good luck.
