Hello crlhill59 I hope I can give you helpful information.Gas alone I mean pure gasoline WILL not freeze.If your gas is freezing that can be caused by water in the gas.You can buy several gas treatment products at your local Auto Zone,just go in and tell one of the guy's whats happening and they'll show you the best product for your problem.And just another idea try and use a different gas station.I hope this help you.Be safe and stay warm.Tim

Below freezing here check engine light comes on at idle goes of at acceleration,...what is it ??..frozen gas?

gas it self cant freeze but if the gas has water in it that will freeze if your using cheap gas you probly have gas in it a bottle of heat or gas additive that will take water out of it will help. as far as the check engine light goes the only real way to tell what that is by having a shop scan it.

Car wont start after bad weather freezeing water pump.

do you get a spark first then go to the next steep, follow the spark from the coil to the plugs then check to see if you are getting gas. Take off the fuel line  and turn the key,maybe  the  gas froze too then check to see if the water pump cracked  or it there are any cracks in the engine
