Q: Difficult start, cold weather

asked by on

I've recently purchased this car with around 180,000 miles on it. It has an automatic transmission. The fluids should be changed soon. The car ran great and had some minor issues. However, when the weather is cold, it starts acting up a bit. One day when the weather was bad, I started it and when I let go off the gas, the car stalled out. I put it in park and tried to restart it but it wouldn't turn on. I kept trying this for several minutes and it eventually started after a bit of struggle. After that, it started normally. Did this happen because of the bad weather or is it more serious?
