Resurrecting this, as I had an interesting issue today. Started the car this morning to go to work, it has been sitting for 6 days, and temp was 18*. She fired right up. Got to work, and it sat 1.5 hours, went out to run an errand, and she cranked at least 5 seconds. Almost thought she wasn't going to start. Drove about 2 miles, had to stop and drop off some mail, car was shutoff maybe 1-2 minutes, and then she fired right up again.
Get to my next destination, where it sat about 1 hour. Temp is now only about 23*. Came out to start her, and again, cranked 3-4 seconds this time. What is going on? She starts instantly after a week of sitting, but on after sitting 1-2 hours, she is taking a while to light - engine turns over just fine, and battery in EVIC is averaging 14.1 volts, as it always has since new. I've had it 3 years in February, 10,000 miles on her. Car is now going to sit about 6 hours, so I guess I'll see what happens when I go to start her up this afternoon.
Just something with the cold?
