Sounds like your engine is not timed right. Does it **** around when shifting to a higher gear? if so, sorry to tell you this, but have your transmission checked out.

My 2007 Milan won't start in cold weather.

Sounds like nonsense to me

Everyone drives a vehicle a couple days a week

If the battery is over 5 years old it may be bad

When you say you had it checked- we need technical
details of how it was tested & it's age

Was the alternator tested & again how?

If you haven't had anything tested in over a year,
you can expect things to not work as they should

Obviously your issues are somewhat weather or temp
related,so a fresh start & a different shop that knows why
your there & what you expect resolved is what is needed

Battery seems to be charged, it will crank 90% of the time but once in a while i have to jump it off. this started when i left the dome light and rear inside light on all night and the battery lost charge.

Maintenance-free batteries really don't tolerate complete discharge very well. If the battery was already several years old, letting it go dead probably was the last straw, so now it may not hold a charge more than a day or two, or it may have so little capacity that if you start the car a couple of times without a long (20 min+) drive between starts to recharge the battery, it won't be able to start the car the next time without a jump. Probably time to go battery shopping.
You didn't mention your model, but many BMWs use unusual battery sizes (group #s). Most of us use a smaller, common size battery, or a larger (longer) battery because original sized batteries are hard to find at the retailers, and when you find one, it may not be very fresh. If your battery will only last six or seven years at best, you don't want to buy one that is already a year old, and has been sitting on the shelf partially charged for that year.

Pontiac grand prix 2003 has trouble starting. I turned off the car after driving it for 15 miles. 10minutes later, I tried to start it again and it wouldn't start. It makes the clicking sounds as if the...

you have a bad battery, if it more than three years old it is suspect, measure voltage it should read 12.5v minimum, if not trash it and install a new one. but also it could be as simple as very corrosion on the cables and post, if they look dirty, clean up with a wire brush real good and tighten it down firmly. Batteries are designed that if you lost you alternator and are just running on battery power and the car finnally gives up, if you wait another an hour, it has a reserve capacity that will allow you a couple more miles usually. i was stranded in the desert one time in the middle of nowhere 60 miles from home and used this technique, i had to do it three times before i got home but then that thrashes the battery and you'll have to replace it. Make sure that your belt is not loose and that its charging up the battery as you drive. You can also check this my monitoring your analog gauge to see if its on the plus side, if you don't have this gauge, then just use a voltmeter and check it while running, it should be around 13v, if its charging the battery.
can you rate this. thanks!

I am buying a Jimmy that has been sitting for over a year. What would you recommend we do before driving it? (IE change oil, etc..)

Check all hoses (radiator, fuel, heater hoses, brake lines, filters, belt, etc). Make certain that you put in at least 5 gallons fresh fuel. Also, check the battery. If there was nothing wrong with vehicle (reason for sitting idle for over a year) then you should not have any problems.
