Hard to start when cold.

Today I noticed my car was hard to start. I cranked it and it wouldnt start up. It turns over but took a minute. It was pretty cold. Anyone know anything that could help out ?

check all ur connections are tight/clean and if everything is working good (battery, etc.). other than that id say most likely ur battery is struggling a bit from the cold temps outside or being old. get one with higher cold cranking amps or just leave it be. correct me if im wrong but my old mechanic before i moved told me starting in neutral takes less power so if u cant start the engine try starting in neutral may get u going (or get a jumpstart lol)... good luck

Dont worry about it. Even with a new battery mine take two tries to start in the morning during winter. As long as it rotates easily its no big deal.
