People need to understand that plug wires need to be changed from time to time. They LOVE to misfire in this 100% cold humidity.

Dont forget moisture in your gas tank. Add gas dry it helped my XJ out. I have not been keeping my tank full 3.39 per gal. and with this crazy weathter, condensation builds up and they dont want to run so good.

Too many bad mechanics? Poorly made products?

Mine didnt start either. I suspect it is because I didnt put any gas in it. No joke.

mine wont start right now either, I am suspecting it is because I locked the keys in it at lunch and that is why I can not use the remote start.

Damn those remote starter / remote keyless entry buttons. Who's idea was it to put them on your keychain? That was my first thought last night at Lowes. I waited in the dang parking lot for nearly 2 hours for the wife to show up with the spare set.

just something to think about. when the tempetures change so fast as they did the last couple of days what happens to metal when it very cold? it condinsates. when it does this it doesn't care if its inside or outside the metal when the condinsation hits it. so if the vehicle sits out all night, the temp drops off and the humidity is off the deep end because of the rain. I wonder how much water was in the intake runners of the cars that wouldn't start? if by chance the wet air charge was bad enough it could very well have blown out any spark or flame before any fuel could light so it washed out the cylinders and it left the vehicle as a no start. some theroy huh?
