Won’t start when it’s cold has new battery, spark plugs and boots

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

It cranks over great.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Nissan?

Se something lol 2007

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

No have mahnic, put new plugs and boots and battery

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

My machanic feels like the coils are fine because it turns over so good and runs without any misses

Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you

this is usually caused by a bad temp sensor so I would start there.

if the issue persists, you will want to check for spark and fuel while cranking cold to further narrow down the cause, but I suspect it is the temp sensor. .

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
