So my rav (fwd; 1998; 170,000 miles) has been going through a tougher winter than it usually has. I moved to montreal and I park on the streets. Getting in and out of parking spaces is very very difficult when there is snow because I dont have snow tires. So my method of getting out of snowy spots is pedal to the floor forwards, pedal to floor reverse, and repeat until I catch some traction. I feel bad for putting her through this but I always believed in her invisibility... until today when I started my car and started to drive down the road and after about 50 feet the engine just died. Now when I try to start it I just get the classic sputter for however long I turn the key. I got a new battery a few months ago so I do not think that is the issue. Whats wrong with my rav4? Is the engine dunzo? I'll need to move my car for snow plowing in the next few days so I either need to start the car/move it or have it towed.
