My 1997 Saturn SL1 won't start when it's cold. It starts when the temp is about 10, for sure. Once it reaches 0 degrees or below it won't start at all, and the temp needs to warm up significantly for it to start. I've had it looked at multiple places and nobody can find anything wrong. What should I try?

Same thing is happening with my Saturn. I replaced the battery because I thought that was the issue. Could it be the alternator? No idea whats going on with it, but I can't have it keep dying on me. Its completely dead, no power to it at all.

My SL1 did the same thing and it was because the cylinoid was froze up and then went out. All I had to do was change the starter and I no longer have the problem.I hope this helps.
