I have a 2003 Honda Accord 2.4. My car was recently serviced and the spark plugs were replaced and the battery was replaced. I started having problem with the car not starting on cool or cold days. I then returned to my mechanic and got the new battery replaced again. I'm still having the same issue when it's cool or cold. When it doesn't start I wait a little bit and it eventually starts with a little gas. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

There are either too many possible answers, or good answers would be too long for this format. Please add details to narrow the answer set or to isolate an issue that can be answered in a few paragraphs.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Any indication on whether the car's having trouble charging the battery? Is the alternator in good shape? – Bob Cross Oct 11 '13 at 19:22
Is the engine turning over at all when you try to start on a cold day? If not, do you hear any 'click' noises as you turn the key to try? There's too many possibilities without more information. – Nick Oct 16 '13 at 15:15
Does it crank, click, or make other noises? does it act the same when you turn all the lights and accessories on? with the headlights on and the key to start, do the lights stay bright or go dim? – Alex Volpe Nov 14 '15 at 17:40
