Definitely a Rant...

My car will not turnover..So much for my trip to the barn..

I can't even understand why. Im not super knowledgable on cars ( I specilize in horses, lol), but I really can't see a reason as to why it wont start..Nothing leaked last night, nothings hanging, no one did anything to it, and the oil seems fine (hopefully I checked it right, lol).

Im really bummed..and my mum's going to try and kill me like it's my fault. I don't even know what to do...Like, I fear for my life basically. I start a new job wednesday and have nonother transportation than that car..Not to mention that car is my pride and joy..

I don't have money for a new car, I don't have money to get it fixed if it isnt under warranty, etc..I don't know what ill do with myself if I can't get it fixed..

One possible reason, cold kills a Battery.

How old is the Battery? If it is 3 or 4 years old, the cold may have finished it off.

I don't know much about cars myself and I'm sure other more knowledgeable people will chime in.

But it sounds like your battery is dead. Which is easily fixed.

The battery shouldnt be too old, the dealership told us it had a new battery, tires, and brakes when my mum bought it at the end of June and it was run until mid-july when I graduated.

Even if it's just the battery...
I swear, life's out to get me this whole

Does your car make the chugging sound like its trying to start but doesn't turn over or does it make a sad sighing noise when you turn the key? Does it do something else?

It is most likely the battery in which case getting a jump should fix it for a while. If getting a jp gets you started I would head to the auto store and buy a new battery. They can run some simple tests on the battery and cables for you too. The connectors could just need a good cleaning.

My mum told me that no ones allowed to touch it because Nissans are apparently touchy and if it doesnt get jumped perfectly it'll screw something up..I can't see how getting a jump is that difficult though. I literally have $6 in my bank account and no card to charge it on..

What does your battery gauge show? Could possibly be that your alternator is out or having difficulties charging your battery.

If it still wants to start/click over, you may be in luck!
