You should be able to buy some replacement screws, they allways break, the bottom cover may assist in drawing air threw the radiator, if in a cool climate should be ok.

My sister ran me off the road this morning on the way to work and her insurance said they won't pay for my vehicle because we live at same address

To an insurer it might look like a scam but it is unlikely they have the right to say they won't pay. You both need to read the small print of your insurance policies; your sister to discover if there is a specific clause allowing the insurer to duck out of a claim at the same address and yourself to discover if your insurance includes any legal protection where your insurer would sue your sister and/or her insurer.

If the damage isn't great or expensive it might be better for your sister to pay you directly if she has any no-claims discount to lose.

Before you become too distracted it is wise to place a description and all the details of the incident on paper and include plan drawings and photographs of the damage and the scene.

If her insurer doesn't have a specific clause then I suggest you proceed with a claim regardless. Make the claim in writing and have it delivered into the hands of the Claims Manager at the company office.

If there is a clause allowing them to refuse to pay it will give you no choice except to forget it or to sue your sister...

While backing out of my driveway over a pile of snow, a piece of black plastic under the car directly behind the front bumper was bent forward and is now dragging over curbs and on low surfaces. I tr

Probably yes.
You probably damaged one of the baffles or road shields that protects the bottom of the engine compartment.
You can remove it, but it should be replaced as soon as you can find one. The shields protect the belts and other components from road debris, and also helps to direct air thru the radiator.

A plastic protective cover fell from the bottom of the car.

If you're talking about the plastic splash guards that bolt on only on the underside of the car beneath the engine, you can bolt it back on by adding washers/flat spacers to the screws so that the splash guard doesn't pull off of the bolts again.

92 VW Jetta ran great one day and wouldn't start again. Daughter ran it out of gas, changed the plugs, put gas and gas line anti freeze still nothing. thinking fuel filter, are there 2 filters? and where...

First, you should Make sure that is the problem. Usually if your filter is clogged enough to kill the car, if you wait 10 to 15 minutes the car will restart. The fuel will eventually seep thru the filter. You more likely have a relay or fuel pump problem if it is fuel. Try removing the air filter and spraying carb cleaner into the intake, if it is a fuel problem, it will start. If it is a spark problem it will not. Most vehicles have a filter inline about half-way between the tank and the engine underneath the car. If you jack the car, trace the 2 lines from the fuel tank tds. the engine. There will probably be a cover to protect the filter.
