I AM HAVEING A PROBLEM WITH MY 01 LDS ALERO WHEN THE OUTSIDE TEMP DROPS BELOW ABOUT 50 DEGREES IT WILL NOT START I GOT IT STARTED ONCE USING QUICK START SPRAY THAT I PUT INTO THE AIR FILTER BOX. NOW IT IS ABOT 60 DEGREES AND IT WILL NOT START WITH OR WITHOUT THE QUICK START SPRAY. i THINK IT IS THE CHOKE BUT I DON'T KNOW HOW TO FINF IT AND IF IT IS A SENSER OR THE FULE PUMP HOW DO I FIND OUT?

Hey jack,

Your car is fuel injected - it doesn't have a choke. You might have a bad Engine Coolant Temperature sensor. You should check for the presence of stored trouble codes (look in Chapter 6 of your Haynes manual). If you don't have a Haynes manual, it's number 38026. You should also check your fuel pressure to see if it's within specifications.
