I have a 2003 ion. I have owned it just over a year it has close to 30K\nmiles on it last winter i had problems when it would get cold out the car\nwouldnt start. When you first try to start it, it acts like a dead batt.\nIt doesnt crank or anything after several attempts to start it will start\nto crank. I tried starting my car for a hour (with breaks in between\ntrys) Finnaly the car turns over like nothing was ever wrong! After three\ntimes of this happening i put it in the shop. They couldnt find anyting\nwrong with it and actually suggested that i wasnt pushing the clutch in\n(like i would drive the car for half a year and not push the clutch in)\nThe weather got warm and we didnt have the problem. This morning was very\ncold and the problem began again my husband tried to start it nothing not\neven trying to turn over. He tries again and it cranks but doesnt start.\nGives it little break 5 mins or so tries to start it, it starts up and\nshuts right back off. Tries to start it again doesnt even crank gives it\nanother break and it starts right up! The shop cant seem to find a\nproblem nothing is registering on the computer so they say. ( which to me\ndoesnt mean nothing is wrong) I wanted to know if anyone had any\nsuggestions on what could be causing this. The car goes to the shop again\ntomorrow and i would like to have and idea of what they should at least be\nchecking! Any suggestions would really help sorry about my awful\nspelling!
