I have late 90's 6x4 and when the temperature gets below freezing it won't start. I can start it if I blow a hair dryer all around the engine and electrical components for about 10-15 minutes, but I've not been able to pinpoint what exactly needs to be heated. Has anyone ever had this issue? I have no issues in warmer weather, but with below freezing temps coming soon and wood to cut I would like to get it fixed. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Update - This is a gas 6x4 and it won't even turn over when the temperature is below freezing. Only when it has been heated will it start to turn over and eventually start.

You need to take all of your ground wires off and clean the lugs until they shine. 3 or 4 ground wires from the harness are attached to the side of the motor under the starter with the main ground. Main ground wire from battery to the motor is very important. Also do the hot wire from the battery to the starter as well as the harness wires to the battery or starter. Clean battery terminals and re-attach wires tightly. ....
