I live in ct and I plan to drive my car in the winter. the temp is only 20 low and 40 high and i already am having trouble starting in the cold, is the reason for this because of bad spark plugs and wire replacement, or is it my battery (i checked my battery and it wasnt dead).

if anyone had any experience with this plz let me know.
thanks

What weight of oil are you running? Many people overlook this fact, oil thickens as it gets cold. So if you run to heavy of weight oil, your motor wont be able to turn over.

How old is the car, the battery, and how many miles?

my mustang is 2000 w/ 59000, the battery may need to be replaced but i dont have any problems in warmer weather.
definitely check out the battery, they generally last 5 years. . . anytime after 4 years is really gravy if you make a lot of short trips.
