1 – Battery Problem Tips
Residents of a colder climate probably worry that their car will not start on a cold winter morning.
If they do not have access to a garage, their battery will be vulnerable to the cold conditions. The icy weather will draw the voltage out of the battery. That is why it is so difficult to start.
Before the winter arrives, you should have your battery checked to ensure that it can get through the conditions. You do not want to wake up one morning and find that your car will not start.
[My test for battery goes like this: 1-Turn your ignition key to on. 2- turn your lights on to high beam. 3- Turn your heater fan on to high blowing. 4- After 3 minutes a good battery will crank and start the engine. 5- If not, replace it].
2 – Spark plug
The spark plug delivers electricity to the engine. If the spark plug is bad, the vehicle will not start. Cold conditions can seriously impact the spark plug and prevent it from delivering the current.
[My tip on spark plugs. Replace them every 4 years. Check their wires for cracks. Replace them if found. Otherwise replace spark plug wires every 8 years.].
3 – Alternator Belt
The alternator transfers power from the gas engine to every part of the vehicle. If your alternator needs to be replaced, you might see your power locks malfunctioning, your wipers sporadically engaging and other bizarre behavior.
It also delivers power to the battery. If it is not functioning properly, there will not be enough power to start. The wintery conditions can sometimes cause your alternator belt to crack. [Replace belts every 8 years]. [A bad alternator is not putting out 16 volts. Replace it if not].
4 – Frozen Fuel Line
Fuel needs to reach the engine for it to have sufficient power.
In very cold conditions, sometimes your fuel line can freeze. Condensation will form on the inside of your tank when gas gets low. This will freeze as condensation is trapped in the filter blocking fuel flow. [Replace fuel filters any time you have a fuel no start problem. An add a fuel-additive with its first listing as making water burnable or not freezable in the fuel system].
Most mechanics will recommend that you keep your tank full, especially during cold conditions.
5 – Fluids Will Thicken
Your mechanic probably tells you how important it is for you to ensure that you check your fluids on a regular basis, especially the transmission. All of these needs to be topped off.
If they are not, your car is not going to run properly.
In wintery conditions, sometimes your fluids age, collect sticky residues and can become thick and will move slowly throughout your engine. This will compromise performance. You need to ensure that you monitor your fluids closely in the winter. [Some additives will aid oil flow by removing resins and sticky residues].
