Has it been checked for codes?

Clean up battery connections and get it tested, sure.

I'd be looking at regular hard starting culprits myself, like spark plugs and wires, cap/rotor, etc. I'd especially be looking at ignition issues if it's not keen to start on starting fluid. 

And just cause I'm curious, how cold is "when it's cold out"?
