PostSubject: Frozen Fuel Lines   December 28th 2010, 3:33 pm

Mad As if 20 inches of snow wasnt enough trouble, my Suburban wouldnt start last night. It would crank, cough, sputter, then die. Over and over again. After 4 different attempts, I gave up. After talking with wifey, she said it had been hard to start the last couple of days but it had always fired on the first try. Knowing that I had replaced most of the usual suspects over the last year, it had to be something else. But what?

affraid FROZEN FUEL LINES!!!!!!!!!! affraid

But, after 3 bottles of water remover/deicer and an hour of frustration, I am happy to announce that the Suburban is now back up and running.

Oh I will, but I also think she must have filled up at a less then decent station. Never, ever, had the lines freeze in the past. It was around 20* last night and no matter what, it wouldnt start. Its started right up at -10* before, so it must have been a lot of water.

Erg! Live and learn, you get what you pay for.
