I have both a 95 & 96 both would start hard when cold below 20 deg.
If it will not start on the first crank or during the first crank I would
push the accelerator pedal all the way to the floor and they would start right up,
just let off before the engine rpm goes above 1500.
The problem I found on both was the coolant temp. senders were bad
they were telling the computer the engine was warmer than it really was
and not putting enough fuel in to start.
The sender is right next to the thermostat housing, pointing up in the air,
you will loose only a small amount of coolant, and replace only when the
engine is cold, it only cost $12.00 at auto zone.
