I've come to the conclusion- my car hates the cold. so what could be wrong?<p>So a couple of weeks ago my car had a fuel problem- it wasn't getting it(It would sputter and die). So I took it in and the mechanic said that my car HATES oxygenated fuel (which is mandatory in UTAH in winters- which I also hate) and the air was being blocked by guck and it probably wasn't getting fuel. anyway, point being, he cleaned it, and it ran fine. I thought it was fixed. . .<br> It snowed again this morning and my car wouldn't even pretend to start for me. This time it wouldn't even sputter, it wouldn't turn over, it just choked. I don't know why my car hates the snow, but if you do, I'd really aprreciate some help. That way I don't seem like a complete moron when I go in and hand over the oodles of cash to yet another mechanic (last time it was a $30 bill, so I guess that's not too bad). I have theories, but then again I'm stil learning about my BMW.<p>thanks- sorry so long

i love it when people make harsh comments in a post like this, and then don't even have the balls to sign thier name to it.

<i>I'm not whining about the repair bill, I actually love the fact that it was only 30. I'm thinking I've found the perfect shop. And I love my BMW, why else would I drive it? But it's killing me that it is sitting in my driveway right now. IT's a great car, it picks up nicely and handles just fine. It needs some repairs (instrument cluster) but I know that. THIS SNOW thing is what's killing me, I can't even drive it. and I don't have any idea what's wrong. <br> I just need to get this engine running and the car will be nice again.<p>Kinohi- that is my REAL name<br></i>
