I'm not really qualified to go into the whys; there are a number of possibles. Try using a winter oil (5W-xx or 10W-xx) and run a tank of super unleaded through it. run gas line antifreeze in tank if it's really cold, also if you have fuel injection it may be a faulty temp. sensor, if it's a carburated vehicle it could be the atomatic choke not working as it should, but yeah 5w30 oil is good for the cold season :)
