Winter season car maintenance needs Precautions

Winter on the car is a “very” season, so make your car safe for the winter, the necessary care and maintenance is very important. For the detection of the engine, tires and lights and other items is a common, but for testing and adjusting the heating, antifreeze and brake systems are targeted.
Antifreeze must be two years for a change
The primary function of antifreeze is to prevent parking in the cold winter, ice and Splitting coolant radiator and engine block frozen or cover for the car’s safety for the winter, has an extremely important role.
If it is less than a new car, two generally do not add antifreeze, because all vehicles have been added at the factory before. If it is old, has replaced quality antifreeze previous year, ie antifreeze freezing point, boiling point and corrosion resistance to meet the requirements, and that this year is not traded. But not changed in two years, antifreeze car, be sure to go to replace. This is because the antifreeze is usually valid for two years, expired antifreeze can cause corrosion of the cylinder, causing serious damage to the engine. Also, make sure to keep antifreeze freezing at minus 25 degrees, if you need to change to colder places lower the freezing point of antifreeze.
To add electrolyte batteries
Fear low battery, the battery capacity at low temperatures than at room temperature when the capacitor is much lower. Therefore, before the advent of the cold season, should be added to the battery electrolyte, while cleaning the battery terminals and apply special grease to protect and ensure reliable starting and prolong battery life. If a vehicle is parked in the open air or cold a few weeks do not, you should remove the batteries, stored in a warmer room, to prevent ice damage to the battery.
Incumbent, with low temperature lubricants
In addition to replacing the antifreeze, safe winter, the owner must pay attention to replace oil. Oil viscosity is temperature dependent. Currently on the market of oil minute “single-stage and multi-stage” two, single-stage engine oil temperature range is narrow, a viscosity grade applies only to part of the year in the season, can not be used all year round. Such as the use of lubricants for engine multi-grade oil, can winter generic (multi-grade oil: 10W / 300E gasoline engine oil, using a range of -20 ℃ -40 ℃; 15W / 300E gasoline engine oil, using a range of -18 ℃ -40 ℃; 15W / 400E gasoline engine oil, using a range of -18 ℃ above). If your car using a “single stage” of oil, the oil should be promptly replaced by low winter use.
Glass cleaning liquid water hanged
In summer, many drivers will often use pure water or water plus detergent, as the glass cleaning liquid, in this regard in order to save money (summer use than larger), on the other hand it is because access to convenient, almost is within reach.
But in the winter, is still used to make glass cleaning liquid water is very dangerous. Once the temperature is too low, pure water, water and other substitutes are often frozen, sometimes put containers are bursting, so winter must bring the original pure water substitutes shine, put not afraid of cold glass cleaning solution . If you really want to save, you can use tap water and 5 to mix liquid antifreeze instead.
Keep the thermostat is working properly
Action is automatic thermostat control normal engine temperature, in the low-temperature start, enabling the engine to heat up quickly in order to reduce cylinder wear. Some car summer temperature is high, the repair personnel put the thermostat removed, although you can solve the problem in the summer, but winter is reversed. If you do not pay attention, it is possible for a small pipe, waste antifreeze barrel.
According to tests proved that, as will be removed thermostat, the engine start-up time to be prolonged 4-5 times, cylinder wear is increased 5-6 times. Therefore, any kind of removed thermostat approach is not correct.truck tyre
