Car Batteries
Buick Century

If a 1998 Buick Century 3.1 is slow to start in warm weather and very hard to start in -20 C degrees but the battery and plugs are good what should you look for a computer check?

coolant temperature sensor possibly, but more likely (these are common for) ecm, but you can't rule out a ignition

Another possibility is the engine is worn out and has low compression. A sure sign would be that it "uses oil".

That all depends on the condition of the battery when they were switched on. If the battery is fine and it is about 70 degrees outside, they could operate all night (8 hours). If the weather is very cold (20 degrees) about 2 hours.

A sweater is for when the weather is around 45 degrees. A jacket is for when the weather is around 20 degrees.

Cold weather puts more strain on a battery than hot weather.

Yes. Cold weather can deplete the charge in any motorcycle, marine, or automotive battery.
