Welcome to the FFO!

When was the last time the spark plugs were changed?
When was the last time the fuel filter was changed?
When operating the starter does the engine cranking speed seem to be slower?

No start when extremely cold usually goes back to the 3 needed basic things.
Lack of sufficient fuel. Is there moisture in the fuel filter or lines that has frozen?
Lack of sufficient spark. Are the spark plugs and rest of ignition system working correctly?
Lack of compression. Or is the engine cranking speed fast enough to generate the compression?
