The 3.7L V6 and 4.7L V8 in very cold climates (below freezing temperatures) moisture can collect in the Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) system and freeze. This will cause various drivability problems and there are revised PCV system components to repair this concern.

Very cold morning 8degrees started it went to church everything was fine went to start it about an hour later and it acts like not getting fuel
My PCV lines froze and blew both my valve cover gaskets - twice so far. Live in alaska and temps were 25-40 below at the time. After first repair, started parking indoors at work (no garage at home) and letting engine idle for 25 minutes after running short trips to and from work (17miles) and covering hood with a blanket at night while plugged in at home.
moisture on the filler cap and in engine
