Customer Question

I have a 2001 Honda Accord it wont start when it is cold outside below 40. Just replaced battery. If I take it into the heated garage it starts fine
JA: Have you checked the coolant level? Has there been any leaking from the hoses?
Customer: No but why would that make it start hard when its cold?
JA: Are you fixing your Accord yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: replacing the battery, and starting it in a warm environment
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: not that im aware of

Do you hear a hum or buzz from the fuel tank area when you first turn on the key or when cranking over the engine?In some cases this will take a second person to help listen to the tank area.

Let me know,thanks Pete.
