It takes alot more than 30 to freeze fuel. Pull a plug and give it a crank. You'll know if theres fuel getting there.

yea i know it take - 20 degress freez fuel ... unlest some water geting in the system... then u'll have ice crstals farming in the fuel .. with would me condisation in the lines somehere .. wich could happen when the temp changed as fast as it did yesterday .... and cranked it already ... did all the basic test .. fuel pump is running ok ... getting spark every where i should be ... and inectored have current... ...etc ... really looks like its the fuel filter ... should have replaced that bitch 6 months ago ..

( this is not the safest thing the world to do ) ... then got the boost pack cause i drained the batt last nite.... then she was chocking.. so i just tapped on the acc... then reved her to around 4k and she stayded on ...

check the coil the spark may not be hot enough to ignite the gas. this was the problem on my s-10 beater i checked for spark and there was spark but it turned out to be not enough spark so i changed the coil out and bam she fired right up first crank.

yea i'm going to have to change a few things.. i have a feeling some other things are going to go wrong.. if it get cold out again like it was last nite..
