Can you hear your fuel pump prime/buzz when you turn the key before starting?

1. Lack of fuel evaporation due to being cold. Use starter spray. 2. Oil, Use 10 weight or less for cold weather. Higher weight for hot weather. 3.Battery works harder in winter, producing fewer electrons. All this together might be the issue. Garaging the car can help.
