Parked my car outside yesterday where it was below freezing all day. Came back to start it, same procedure as always: Cycle fuel pump, then start. Fired right up and died. Cycled key again and no fuel pump cycle.. My mechanic buddy was close by thankfully. He pulled the rear seat bottom and the passenger side panel above fuel pump. After a few bangs with a wrench the car started right up and ran like normal.
So what do we think it is? A 'frozen' fuel pump? Water in the fuel that froze and blocked the line? Should I try any fuel additives to remove water? Drain/flush the tank?
Thanks for any input
