How do you stop a 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera from not starting in the winter?

OOOH Dang carburetors anyway! Ha.These things can be more

tempermental in between summer and winter. The proper way to start

one of these vehicles, is to first depress the accelerator all the

way to the floor, and release. The same is true for both summer and

winter. What this does is set the choke/fast idle, and primes the

intake with a little bit of gas. This is supposed to help start the

engine. The next thing to do is turn the key to start the engine.

It should start quickly, but if not, then you may have other

problems that need to be repaired.
