No start in extreme cold weather

I have a 1998 ex-police crown vic. The car runs great. That is until lately if its 32 degrees or lower the damn thing doesn't want to start. Stong cranking, all lights work etc...Would'nt start for nothing yesterday.Today its kike 40 outside,so I thought what the hell. WAS hard,but it finally started.Once it warmed up,it started fine the rest of the day.Tomorrow in th AM Im not so sure.Anyone out there have a problem like this. Sure could use some input. scshane367@yahoo.com

I'd run it by Advanced auto parts or Autozone and have them check for codes. See what comes up.

Hello and good day:

Have you changed the Fuel Filter lately? Try to put some "Heet" in the fuel tank. or some good Fuel injector cleaner in it.

Re: No start in extreme cold weather

Do you know if the fuel filter is in the tank along with the fuel pump?

The fuel filter is on the frame rail in front of the passengers rear wheel. The light doesn't have to be on for codes to be present.
