Cold weather subarus

Second thing thats kinda bugging me. When I start the car now it wants to die right away. I had to start it 3 times this evening. Even after the engine has warmed up if I shut of the engine and come back to it a few seconds later it still dies right after start up. Is this normal for subarus in the cold? I've never had a car react like this from it just being really cold out. So I doubt it's the cold but figured I would post and see if anyone had some insight on this.

2) The shaking might be caused by ice stuck to the inside of your wheels.
3) As for the starting problem, I dont have a clue.

Tires get very brittle when it is cold, maybe just a tire issue?
So it's about 6 degrees outside right now. And my subaru is acting a bit different. For starters the tire pressure is fine. But the car really extremely shakes now on the highway at any speed above 55mph. I went to the car wash and blasted all the ice in my fenderwells out. Car ran smooth for the rest of the drive. Later on tonight when I got back on the highway same thing. I don't know what's up with that...any thoughts?
No subaru's run very well in the cold.

I would put a few bottles of heat in your tank, maybe have a bit of water in the lines?
