To those who live in Massachusetts the freezing season is here. That means your car can be covered by inches of ice in just a few hours. Here go some tips to have your car ready to deal with troublesome temperatures.
*Brush off the ice from your car using an adequate snow brush.
*Don’t use a snow shovel. It can scratch the paint easily or even chip a window.
*Touch the car hood and car top with completely open hand, which can break the thin ice to be brushed off.
*Don’t use a hammer or a piece of wood or a plastic ice scraper with more than two feet in length. You risk denting the metal or break a window, which is easier to break in colder temperatures.
*Start the car and turn on the front and rear defrosters.
*Before starting the car, check if the muffler tip and the radiator grill are clean.
*Don’t let the engine running without assistance. If the coolant is not properly mixed and if the radiator is frozen, your car will overheat and damage the engine.
*Turn on the headlights. The heat from its lamps will help the glass lenses to defrost.
*Don’t turn the windshield wipers on before they are free from ice and snow. If they are on while you clean the windshield, its engine and blades can be damaged.
*Use windshield washer’s fluid proper for winter. This will help melting the ice from windows.
*Don’t pour boiling water on windows. The high temperature difference might break them.
