98 Taurus won't start after below zero weather in Minnesota. It will turn over but just doesn't start. I exchange the five year old battery but it still doesn't start. Can anyone in TCCA help me revive the Taurus!

Is the fuel pump coming on when you turn the key to the "on" position(that's right before "start" on the ignition)? You'll here a slight hum if it is.

If you can, get it into a heated garage and let it warm up for a few hours, then try to start it. It's probably flooded if the fuel lines froze, so you may have to hold the gas pedal all the way down while cranking it to clear out the fuel from the combustion chamber-change the oil soon after as it probably will have gas in it.
