Cold weather question.

Our car is going to be sitting outside in low to mid 30s for 5 to 6 days while we are in Cali for the holidays. What are the chances it will not start when we get back? Here in Chicago it kinda takes a while to start when its cold. It always starts on the first try but its kinda slow to do so. The car is brand new.

Kind of a lame question I know but I thought I knew about cold until i moved here! Chicago cold is crazy compared to NJ winters. Thanks in advance!

Does your car has one of those block-heater plug? A lot of new cars here in Canada comes with it... check under hood, a lot of European cars don't have it hang out in the front grill, it's hidden under the hood...

Unless of course, if this is a mustang then your door handles and other thing may break off in the cold....

low 30's is nothing. just worry about it in below 0 degree weather. then you really want a block heater

Yeah that's true... I didn't see the mid 30F part... that's about -1C... should be a problem at all...

Yeah like they said you wont have problems with just that temp... however some things to watch out for in cold weather is the typical cold air intake mod a bunch of people do on their cars... this typically removes the choke system and makes it much more difficult to start in the cold... this is the only reason why my car still has stock airbox :-( A DECENT battery should be fine.
