We have prepared for you the most effective life hacking, which will help to easily start the car even in the dead of the frost.

Patience

After turning on the ignition, do not rush to start the engine immediately: give time to the fuel pump to pump up gasoline.

Morning work-out

As soon as you get into the car, blink the high beam or turn on the music. This small starting load will be very useful for the battery.

Saving

But before turning on the ignition, it is necessary to reduce the overall load on the battery; to do this, turn off all electrical appliances.

Add gas!

After several unsuccessful attempts to start the car, squeeze the gas pedal. This will help flush the combustion chambers from the fuel accumulated during your first unsuccessful attempts.

Caring for CAT

If your four-wheel drive has a manual gearbox, we recommend starting it by squeezing the clutch. After the engine starts, do not let go of the clutch for a few more minutes. This will not only facilitate the engine start, but also reduce the load on the gearbox.

Prevention

Regularly check the spark plugs and use fuel additives (which are poured into the carburetor and fuel system), which contributes to a faster and safer engine start.

Sim, open up!

The most sensitive issue of all motorists is the freezing of locking mechanisms. If at least one of the doors opened and you managed to get into the salon, then start the car and warm it up properly - the problem is solved! If all the locks are frozen, try one of the following methods.

  • Pour in the lock medical alcohol.
  • Heat the key with a cigarette lighter and insert it into the lock. Turn slowly and carefully.
  • Get a defroster (a special spray or spray based on alcohol, oil or silicone), which, by the way, can be used for prevention. The most important thing is not to keep the defroster in the car, otherwise at the crucial moment you will not be able to use it, it is better to keep the spray always with you.

We hope that our advice will help you avoid unforeseen situations and support your car on the go in any weather.
