    I am living in Northern Manitoba Canada, i am dumb and kept forgetting to put in gas line antifreeze, it never was a problem.

    i woke up and tried to start the car (it was plugged in all night) and it wouldn't start, it turned over, but never started. It had been -35 degrees Celcius all night long.

    After i got home from work, i poured in a bottle of Gas line anti freeze, and tried to start it, it started up just fine, but the engine light came on.

    I drove around for a while, started it up and shut it off a few times, but the check engine light is still on,
    Does anyone have any ideas as to what happened? I am stuck, and i hate paying a couple hundred bucks if i can do anything myself!

    Thanks guys.

    Can't be of much help without the code. Check with your local DIY parts stores and see if they offer loan/use of a OBD II code reader. I purchased my own reader for $99. It has paid for itself many times over. Otherwise consider getting an estimate for repair from the local mechanic. In the USA, Federal regulation requires 2yr 24,000 mile warranty of most emissions and 8 year 80,000 mile warranty on specific parts, so check with your dealer as they may fix it for free if Canada has similar protections.
