hey, I've got a question, my car has been acting some what normal lately. But the other day, In Nj the first really really really cold day, my car was struggling to start, it was turning voer really slow. Now is this because of the temp or because the starter is going, or because of the battery? thanks in advance

load test the battery. if it is dead charge it and check to make sure the alt is working. if that is ok do a amp draw test with a amp meter in series with the battery and the negitive terminal anything over .2 will drain the battery while it is shut off. how cold is it what weight oil are you using ?

good luck happy holidays
