Question type: Maintenance & Repair

something freezes under 32 degrees and when it warms up outside it starts, coolant is ok and battery is new the distributor is new, what could be freezing and not allowing car to start

When you say won't start, does it crank? If it does try some gas treatment, you may have water in your fuel. The ethanol fuels have a significant amount of water in it.
