after a cold week the car will not start

Recommended Posts

Hi guys.

It was really cold for the past week and the car was covered in snow but I did start the car few times just to make sure everything is fine and when I first tried to start it. The car died immediately but then I pressed on the gas a littlie and the car started. Yesterday the snow was melted of the car so I tried to start the car and I could get it to start the engine fires then die in less than a second it (cranks but will start). I tried to press on the gas but nothing. I could hear the fuel pump buzzing and the battery was replaced a year go and I could turn in the headlight and its not week ,and the fuel tank is quarter full. One of the things I noticed when the car was covered in snow is that the throttle was harsh and if you press it will stick but now it feels normal.
