clean your throttle spray throttle body cleaner at the butterfly,and pour radiator flush into your expansion bottle, as your cold start sensor may need cleaning , then drain it and refill with 50/50 anti freeze mix.

How long did the car sit with out being ran?

When was the fuel filter changed last at?

How cold is it when you tried to start it?

Have you been able to pull the codes on it?
