Since the cold weather hit here ive been having a little trouble geting my car to start up in the morning. Its a 2000 lincoln ls. I just replaced the starter about a month ago. when i try to start it after its been sitting outside all night it tries to turn over doesnt do it then next try if i give it a little gas itll start. Is it possible that its my battery on its way out??

Cold weather is really hard on a battery.

What might work fine in the summer time is almost guaranteed to leave you stranded on a cold day.

Depending on how cold it gets around your way, you might consider a battery blanket.
