longer turn over on start w/ cold weather

is this normal? i believe this started when temperatures were around 30 F and below

also i accidentally drained my tank once back in december w/c im not sure if that had any adverse effects causing issue.

mine too.

thanks guys. i heard of this with other cars generally but i thought we were immune. does synthetic oil help and higher end battery?

i did use a red optima battery in my previous car and i never had this issue.

had my 1st oil change already also but i see there's no bearing in this topic.

Sedan only. Err... automatics only?

EDIT: Liftbacks do it too... whoops.

Works in my LB too. Turn the key all the way back & let go... it was hard getting used to letting go at first!

whats the cca on the stock batt? bet a decent battery would solve the struggling to start issue, mine does that all the time.

Today, its been really really cold where I live like below 0 without windchill...anyway my car was outside overnight and I decided to bring it in the garage, man did it have a long turn over. Then when it was on the engine sounded like a diesel truck! It was awesome! I know its because its been sitting there and its really cold so its going to run/idle rough at first until it warms up. According to my scanguage the coolent temp was below 0! Although it warmed up fairly fast. I hate the cold and winter...That's my warm up story
