The other day we had an non-preheated C-182 start for a couple seconds and then quit. It never wanted to start again.
Yesterday my C-172 battery was dead so I tried hand starting..... It ran for a few seconds and quit.... Then I wore out my shoulder trying to re-hand start...
Anyway, whenever this happens my buddy always says " We must have frosted the plugs " I have heard this before for a couple other folks over the past 35 years or so ..
Does anyone have a logical argument of how or why the plugs are frosted in cold weather???
I always figured I had flooded and drenched the plug with too much fuel or carbon fouled them by running super rich,,,,
