not sure where you are but this problem may be due to cold weather, check electrical system (ie: battery, alternatorr, starter)

This wouldn't keep your car from starting, mine ran fine when it was bad......it just made my HC readings go way up.....
Both the purge solenoid and the EGR solenoid are poorly mounted.....too close to all the engine heat, makes them sticky and eventually fail. New ones at the big "D" are about $120......I just got one two months ago (failing to find a good one at the 'yards).
