No, not unless it's 20 below and you don't have the proper 50/50 mix. It's something else. What? Hard to say, a 1998 start by checking ignition timing or it could be something in the choke if it's very cold, not giving it the little extra fuel for cold start. Not sure what sort of system that car has for that -. It's fuel injected, but SPFI, MPFI, or what
