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

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
