Please feel out your sig so we know what we are working on, also your location. Are you getting fuel? How do you know? What are your volts while cranking? Is the HPOP filled with oil before you crank? Do you have a WTS light? I don't have time to check this area often so you can PM me with the answers to these questions.

Tons of stuff you need to check first.
If you can scan it do so. Like NC said, see if it's getting fuel. See if the HPOP reservoir is full. I'm sure he'll point you in the right track.

Not unless we're talking around 20*F or so. And it would crank and crank and finally catch very roughly.
