    97 Outback will not start when it is REALLY cold! Ignition turns over,
    but engine won't start. Once the day warms up, the car starts.Mechanic
    last week had the car, but temps were in the 30s, so it cranked right
    up, wouldn't you know!

    Anyone have the same problem? Find a solution? Thanks.

    You say ignition turns over?? Do you mean the engine turns over?? If the
    engine turns over How fast or just barely? Do you have a quality 5w30 or
    10w30 oil in the engine? Have you had a battery load test preformed and are
    all the electrical connections good? Give us more information and respond to
    this thread with you answers and results. eddie

    Had a tune up done recently? Check or replace spark plugs, wires if needed,
    add some injector cleaner and alcohol (gas line de-icer). As eddie noted,
    5w-30 oil will make a difference as well.
