sounds like a loose connector or a broken wire some where.

This is going to sound weird but your whole 50 degrees thing made the oil viscosity pop into my head? If its the cold problem, it could be that your oil is too thick, and its having troubles starting, But then again just throwing that out there. The oil pump can't push the cold thicker oil through the Galleries
