I have a 2003 chevy tracker V6 ..it will not start in 30…

I have a 2003...

I have a 2003 chevy tracker V6 ..it will not start in 30 degrees or colder weather.. but if it's above 30 degrees it starts like it's a brand new car.. what is the problem?

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

The car cracks over & over again but will not start.. I have used almost a can of ether & again it won't start..it has a new battery & a complete new tune up.. with a new crank sensor. New coil packs..

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '03 Chevy?

Tracker 4×4 V6 engine

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

It's been in 2 shops spent $1,500 plus money.. it's been in the 3 shop all week.. & nobody has figured it out.. I'm picking it tomorrow..

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

Nope.. I think it's a sensor that's bad but the engine light is not on

Hello and Welcome!

My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today.

Can you tell me how many miles are on the vehicle?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
There is about 136,000 miles

I have seen several things cause this, the first thing we want to check and see if there are traces of oil found in the intake manifold runners, front intake crossover pipe or the throttle body. Have the shop check this and let me no what they find.
