is the engine turning over?

if its not even turning over, then check to see if the battery.

if the battery is fine, check to see if u blew a fuse.

okay so they sent a tow truck over

he tried to start up my car

after like 15 attempts to start it.... amazingly it starts up

now he says that its bad gas. im not sure if it is entirely true any opinions on it??

once he started the car a huge cloud of exhaust came up from the muffler

i filled up, right when the big snow storm started, at esso on victoria and kingsway when they had gas at 78.9 and i always filled up my car there include my minivan and never had a problem with it

i'm gunna bring in the car to toyota on the weekend and get them to check it out
