This is a new one on me, so hopefully a little bit of crowd-sourcing from the faithful MF readers will be able to help out. This from reader Mark M.

>I currently own a 2007 Mini Cooper S, and I have been having a problem with it that no one seems to be able, or willing, to help me with. I have owned it now through two winters including the current one and my car will not start when the temperature falls below freezing.

This is different in that his car **won’t** start when it’s cold. I’ve heard of the stumble when cold, the dieseling (for lack of a better term) when cold, but not this.

Has this happened to you? What was the fix?
