Question about Pontiac GTO
Posted by Anonymous on
Assuming the engine is in good shape and not in need of a major tune-up, check your carburetor choke. It's not closing when cold. Clean and adjust.
Get a service manual and follow the instructions. Far too complicated to cover here.
Also, make sure you know how to properly SET the choke on a cold start. Slowly push the gas pedal to the floor and let up. Start engine without touching gas. If it's REALLY cold, like 0 degrees, you can hold the pedal halfway down while starting, after setting the choke.

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.

Have a mechanic take a look at your throttle position sensor and engine idle sensor. Make him manually adjust them as opposed to just putting in new ones. It may require that you have to have a higher idle than normal. Your underlying cause is going to be that I am sure you have a lot of miles on your engine.
