Please clarify what you mean by "crank up". Do you mean that the engine won't crank when it's cold? If that's the case it might be a battery problem. Sometimes a battery can produce enough current when it's warmer but the temperature drops, the chemical reaction will slow enough that it doesn't make enough current to crank the engine. Have the battery checked. When a battery gets to that point it is weak enough that it will show up on a routine test.
IF YOUR CAR LEAKS WATER AND HEAT BLOWS COLD AIR WHAT THE PROBLEM
I need to know why do i need to crank my chevy truck to start ?
If you live in a cold climate the more the better.
could be bad bushings in the starter.
You will have only cold air coming thru your heater ducts if your core is defective.
Your cooling system is empty of coolant and you must have a large leak somewhere.
Stalling at idle? Immediately after starting? While driving? While stopping? Cold or hot engine? What engine do you have?
Low coolant, stuck thermostat, blocked hoses.
I have a 1997 Chevy Malibu with 176k on it. Never had a new engine or anything, runs like a champ. It has been making a knocking noise when its cold.(until car is warm) for a long time now. It still makes a little one while at idle, not loud or can even really be heard though.

5W30 in cold weather. 10W30 in hot weather.

Yes, the main concern is if the terminals will be on the correct side and will it fit. The cold crank amps is the max current the battery will put out when cold. Your cars starter will only draw what it needs.
no cap, there is only a cap on over flow coolant tank. to add coolant add to tank make sure it is at the right level when cold.
Your engine knocks when you cold start it because the motor oil is not viscous enough to lubricate crank bearings, cylinders, etc. warm it up first, engine will last alot longer
Through it away, i had one, and put three times what is was worth into it.
bypass hose , lets some not much coolant pass during cold starts helps bring the "cold " water up to temp with the "hot" water in the engine
Its located on the passenger side of the motor its easier if u get under the truck u can see next to the distributer cab just take electrical plug off and remove screw with socket make sure truck is cold saves u alot of burning.
5W30 is what the manual states. No variation for weather/temperature conditions are listed, though many backyard mechanics have told me that 10W30 is "just fine" or better in cold weather.
Answermake sure you line up the marks on the crank and cam and you should be fineDon't waste your time pulling the crank sprocket, get a large cold chisel and smack that baby one good time. The sprocket will split in half as its a lot softer material than the crank.
Too much timing?
