Help my car seems frozen

It's -4 F this morning, and my car cranks. It just won't turn over. I have searched this forum and tried every suggestion so far, and have almost killed the battery in doing so. I am already late for work, and am no closer to fixing the problem.

Cranks and turning over are the same thing. I think you mean it won't fire up or it won't start. Try dry gas. Most likely a frozen gas line. Dump in a bottle or two and let it sit for an hour or so. Takes time to work.

Thanks, I will try that once I can find a ride to the gas station.

Yeah, my wife's LHS needs to have Heet dumped in the tank BEFORE it gets too cold or the gas lines freeze on sub-zero temps. Be careful and don't burn out the starter. IIRC, you shouldn't crank it more than 30 seconds at a time, with a couple of minutes between tries. It's about $130 for a new starter, found out the hard way.

Good Luck.
