Once you engine
Runs up the miles, cold weather makes cranking, starting, idling, and operating more laborious.
These 10 tips check those items so you can give each a
"Pass," "No Pass," test. With tips to correct those that fail.
The 1st three items on my Ending Winter Engine Starting, Running Problems - check list is to check the following.
- The battery check.
How to tell if it will crank and start your car in freezing weather.
- Do this: Turn your high beams on and the heater fan to high speed - key on, but motor not running for 3 minutes time.
Then, start the car. If it starts up and idles smoothly - lucky you. Your battery is good. That test equals a "load test" all batteries must pass - to be considered "Good."
If the battery fails this test, buy a medium-priced battery. And those clothe red & green pads to go around the battery post.
Check your alternator.
This device keeps the battery charged and provides all the electricity for the car after the motor starts running.
If you did test #1, so the head lights shone on a garage door, wall, or such, at the moment the motor started, you will easily notice the lights will be brighter for one minute, then dim.
What say ye! If they did, the alternator is charging OK, and will keep your battery fully charged - as you drive, and ready to go!
You may have a charging gauge on the dash that will show the needle go up to a higher voltage for a minute, then drop to about 16 volts - more or less. Both are "pass results."
If below 13 volts or just about 12v, or less, replace it.
The started check
This device cranks and spins the motor, so it starts right up.
- To check it, as you turn the key to crank the motor starting it, listen to its sound. It should not have a lazy, difficult, maybe a kinda grinding spin sounds as it turns or spins, cranks the motor.
If it sounds like its hurting as it spins and the other sounds above are heard - replace it.
The engine sludge test
If your motor sounds a bit worn, its 4 or more years old.
- Has a tap
- Burns oil
- Waste fuel
- Has lost some of its power and zip over time
You need to switch to this
oil change method,
to rid the motor of residue and friction. Those negatives drag-down and labor the motor.
Residue becomes frozen tar around your pistons, rings, valves, and bearings and causes a huge drag on the cold starting, and running operation.
After you follow the links that show you how to rid your motor of residue and friction, it will crank, start, and run as if new.
My oil change products and tips are the inside answer to rid your motor of "inside caused of cold weather starting and running problems. My
oil change method,
will end those problems fast.
And this ends any
transmission shift, transmission leak problem
your car may have, too!
Tune up time
After about 4 years time, spark plugs need to be replaced. The mechanic will replace them, check other items, and make a recommendation on them - if needed. A $100 more or less expense.
The tip of the spark plug decays over time and this widens its gap. That wider gap makes it harder for the spark to jump every time and set-off
