I guess you would say it's dead. The battery (brand new) turns over but the car doesn't start... :(
I don't have starter fluid and I wouldn't even begin to know where to find the intake, so no, unfortunately, I can't try this.
that makes sense to me - I'll see if I can get a neighbor to help me with the banging on the tank bit. I'm thinking that probably everything got jostled around when AAA pulled my car up onto the flatbed and that's why it started for him (or maybe that little bit of gas we added did something), eh? If I can't get it started, I'll have it towed again and have my mechanic check out the fuel pump. Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX appreciate you.
