Default Passat cold weather starting issues

Alright, my starter problems are back (it's been replaced about 5 times in the 1.5 years I've owned the car).

When it's cold in the morning, the starter will sometimes start, make noise, then immediately fzzzzzzzzzzzzz and stop. I then crank it again once or twice and it starts. Any ideas?

And this isn't a biodiesel issue. I had this problem last winter before using bio.

Maybe it's not the starter? Check my ignition sw post.

Nate don't know if you've had the starter out butttt....the rubber coated wire connection between the starter bod and the solenoid is notorious for turning to dust!!! It looks OK but pull on that sucker and you might be surprised!
That fixed my problem anyway.

Hey Derek, send me an email. The "dgelinas@hunnr.org" address you have in your profile doesn't work, nor does your old cell phone number.
