Question about Cars & Trucks
Change to a low viscosity oil such as 5W30. It will flow very well in colder weather. The higher viscosity oil is like bacon grease, kind of sludgy until it is warmed up.

Testimonial: "Nothing to do with the oil...it's been in the 80's here"
When was the last time you changed or cleaned the spark plugs. I had an older car and just would not fire up when it was real cold outside. We ran down two batteries so at zero degrees Fahrenheit I changed the spark plugs. No problem after that
also is your carburetor set up so the choke is working properly?

Testimonial: "I already changed the spark plugs, that did not help. there is no way to adjust the choke, idle speed or timing on this vehicle. I pulled the plugs and they were wet with gas. I turned the motor over with the plugs out and gas pumped out of the spark plug holes !"
