The first cold snap every year I have a difficult start. I just pull the batt cables, ream the clamps out, wire brush the hell out of them and I am good for the winter. The cable clamps look pristine but they might have juuuuust enough corrosion to not get full power. I work 12 hour overnight shifts and didn't even have the romps on a 6 deg morning. That's not plugged in on 5 year old Interstates Batts.
I ream the clamps and scrape the batt terminals with one of those cheap battery tools from Autozone. Works like a charm every year.
