I have to start by honestly saying, THESE MECHANICS ON THIS WEBSITE ARE THE BEST!
I'm having a problem with my 2011 dodge avenger. Starting off, I must say that previous to this, I have seen a lighting bolt on my dashboard when the car is in on position and I set the time 5 min ahead. During the span of about 6 months, it'll be almost caught up to the current time.
The issue is, in the morning when I start my car, in 10 degree weather or less, it coughs. It doesn't start, and you can hear it wanting to start up but like I said it coughs. This particular morning, it was 12 degrees out. I went to start it, turned the key all the way to start it up, it coughed and then it did nothing. I had the key turned and it was like the car shut off completely. I went and turned it on again it coughed and turned on. When the engine is on the lightning bolt does not appear. I think personally, that the problem is the battery, but someone mentioned to me it could be the drivetrain. Does anyone know what the problem could be?
