1998 Oldsmobile Bravada Questions

Cold weather start problem. Alt., batt., connections ok . Suspect fuel delivery? (1 answer)

Cold weather turns over but won't start. Usually try short turnover intervals otherwise battery runs low. When warm weather I don't pump pedal, it starts. I bought new 700cca battery, now cranks faster but still takes 4+ cranks to start. Alternator, cables, connections are good

I Love my Bravada so much I have named her and my children and husband consider her part of the family. Though the fuel pump failed not to bad to repair. I neglected the humming noise and the jolt as I would start to drive. Sure enough due to my neglect the drive shaft (rear)ended up on the ground. Cant wait to get her fixed cant wait to get back on the road with good ole trusty.
