Well, I've found somebody who says they can pick up my sister. But apart from that, it's like this: When the system tells a customer "we will operate in X fashion," do I not have the right to expect the system to operate in that fashion? Should I assume the system will fail? If the system fails, do I not have a right to expect some form of corrective action? Should I have to pay out my own money to fix somebody else's mistakes?

Imagine if you, personally, were in this situation, even with the car at home. Would YOU be happy to take it up the azz in this fashion? What if I (or you) weren't at home, but rather in some parking lot somewhere? Would you really just shrug your shoulders and say "well, that's life?"

I know, like he's the only person that ever had to pickup a person at the airport and there ride goes on the fritz.

A cab is the best & most viable solution.
I think he like many folks is just needy of drama to have a story to tell.

I personally would not be laying my problems on to my friends and having a fit about a _free_ towing service not being able to pick me up.

I'd call a cab and get to where I need to be.
Work out the larger problems first then in steps conquer the smaller.

BTW, there is an old saying; You get what you pay for.

No, I agree that it sucks. My only point is that you seem to be flailing about trying to get everything right simultaneously instead of breaking it down into workable chunks. Just two different ways of approaching a situation, I suppose.

And yes, I certainly would chalk this up to "that's life." There are certainly bigger crisis in this world to worry about.

I'm with Layman. ^^

Also, I'd bet that dude's car has a 1/4 tank or less of gas.
When ever a cold snap is predicted/expected always have you gas tank at 1/2 or better. Thats a rule from the oldest of days and its applicable to carbs as well as FI.

Next time, just get a buddy to give you a push down a hill and force it to start that way.

Since temperatures here are expected to be 10 below freezing all weekend, I don't think there's hope for it to thaw without going inside.

My sister's coming home from Hawaii tomorrow; I'm supposed to be picking her up. I hope like hell I can get the car somewhere warm early enough for it to thaw out so I can get to the airport on time.

DjB

Buy some starter fluid and spray it into your intake as a friend cranks the engine. If it starts but will only stay on with you spraying fluid, then it's a fuel line issue. Try keeping the car running with the starter fluid for a minute and you should hear a pop. The car should stay on after that.

It started after warming up/thawing out. I dumped in a bottle of gas dryer, and will add another tomorrow night.

Tonight when I went to leave my sister's house it took ~2 minutes of cranking to start the car.

I'm assuming that it will refuse to start in the morning. In that eventuality, is there somewhere I can pour hot water to thaw things out?

Just make sure you dont fill up till the light comes on and you shouldnt have this problem again.
That way any water that is in the tank gets used up with the gasoline.

Forget bringing your car in, throw a big tarp and/or some blankets or something over your car and put a space heater under it. Camp near by so no one messes with it. Should be about as good as moving in doors. Kick some snow around the edge of the tarp so air doesn't move in and out, if you like.
