my z has a hard time starting in cold weather too. it will crank but not start then it will eventually start. have you checked out your cold start valve? the one on my car is bad and i have to get a new one. depending on the temperature this might help, since that is what that valve is for. have someone check that out.

take care

If it runs fine when it finally does start, then it is probably the Thermotime switch/ Cold Start valve combination. These two devices act like a choke on a carbureted engine. The Thermotime switch is activated when the temperature is below about 55F I think. It turns on the cold start valve when the ignition is in the start position. The cold start valve is an injector that sprays additional fuel into the intake.
