Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Last year about the same time my wife's car wouldn't start in colder weather.  I can hear the pump working, but the car will not start.  After waiting 10-20 minutes the car will turn over and run fine the rest of the day.  Yesterday I attempted to start it..wated the 20 minutes and still nothing..I then turned the key on and off several times and heard a louder noise from the rear of the car and it started....Any ideas?

I would change the fuel filter,crank sencor and run a can of fuel injector cleaner in a tank of gas,sea fome is the best,you may also want to remove the throttle body cover,get a can of carb cleaner and spray the heck out of the TB do this while running throttleing it,dont let it idle,it will die out on you.
