Open windows before parking to ventilate and cool down

"When driving in winter, we will turn on the warm air to increase the temperature in the car. After we get off the car, the car will still maintain a high temperature for a period of time. If it rains or snows at this time, the snow that initially fell on the glass will be because of The temperature inside and outside the car is inconsistent and melts when it freezes." Mr. Ma said that the next day when driving, the snow on the glass needs to be swept away, and then the most troublesome layer of ice that is the most worrying. The best way is to start the car. When the engine water temperature rises, blow the windshield with warm air until the ice melts. But this method also has certain drawbacks, that is, it is time-consuming, laborious, and oil-consuming.

To avoid freezing the windshield, Mr. Ma shared his tips. "Before locking the car the first day, first open the door to ventilate, try to keep the temperature inside the car as low as possible, then cover the windshield with newspaper or cotton cloth, and then clamp the door to avoid being blown away by the wind, which will fall into the car. The snowflakes on the window will not melt before freezing.

It is understood that because there is no expectation of snowfall, many car owners will find that the wipers have been frozen on the windshield the next morning. If the wiper is turned on to scrape snow before the ice melts, the drive motor of the wiper may also be burnt. There are only two ways to avoid such losses, one is to use the wipers after the ice and snow melt, and the other is to raise the front windshield wipers after locking the car.

In addition, because the vehicle is parked outdoors overnight, the oil will slowly flow into the oil pan. Therefore, after the car is heated, the oil cannot immediately be transported to the piston that needs the most lubrication by the oil pump through the oil pump. Heat is necessary. Allow the engine to warm up for about 1 minute before traveling in winter to lubricate the engine. At this time, the water temperature of the engine is not high. If the warm air is turned on at this time, in order to achieve the desired temperature, the air conditioning system will often intervene automatically, which will lead to an increase in fuel consumption.
