    I have a 1993 subaru legacy that starts and fine except when the
    weather is cold. Actually I shouldn't say that , it will start fine
    with a portable jumpstarter that I keep in the car(I imagine it would
    jumpstart from another car too) Mostly in the mornings is when I have
    trouble, but sometimes it will not start later on in the day, or
    sometimes I will start it up and drive even a short distance, and then
    it wont start on the way back. Any suggestions?

    Had your battery's cold cranking amps tested yet?

  3. If you mean it cranks but will not start, possibly an intermittent crank
    angle sensor or maybe a bad engine temp sensor(not temp gauge sender).
