This is my first posting here, and it is regarding the first gas (and electronically injected) rig I've ever owned. I have a number of diesels, all of them mechanical, and just acquired a 1995 Legacy wagon. I'm quite pleased with the car, but we have been have some cold weather recently (I live in Northern Vermont, about 1/2 hour from Canada), and the colder it is, the more trouble the car has starting, to the point that this past entire week, I have had to hook up my 200 amp battery box to get it to start. Today, which pre-windchill temperatures haven't climbed over -6F, no amount of cranking will get it going, and I don't feel like buying a starter, so I'm not going to push my luck. I did crank it for 30 seconds a couple times, and it sounds like it wants to start, but no-go.
Once warm and up to operating temperature, however, it has no issues. The engine purrs, and it'll start right up time after time when running errands around town and the like.
Thanks in advance for any replies,
