We started having an issue with cold starts (below 0° F), engine would start, then after 20 seconds or so would start misfiring, then quit. No engine codes/light etc. found out it was the intake manifold gasket. $7 part and around an hour. The car had been making a slight chirping sound from the belts when humid, started when about 1 year old. Replaced belt, tensioner arm/pulley, didn't help, replaced water pump and the sound went away briefly but now worse. Pump had a wobble.
