I have a 1999 Mercury Cougar V6 and whenever winter comes around my car has trouble starting. I know this is common for cars but I turn the key and the rpm indicator moves from the very bottom up to past 3 then slowly goes back down to zero and dies. I was wondering if this is a common problem and how would I go about fixing it.
