Ran fine went to start it twelve hours later at 10 degrees F in the garage. Outside temperature was -25 with -50 windchill. It was -10 two days before that. It started right up, then spit and sputtered. It wouldn't stay running unless I applied pressure to the gas pedal to keep it running. When I would put it in gear it was almost impossible to move. Excessive exhaust. White in color. I'm a mechanic on a farm and it acts like the choke is stuck on.
