Ice Covered Car. How to Avoid Problems

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.
