Dealing with cold weather.... Sign In

Ok, it's January 13, 2007 which should show anyway but it is noticed how cold and nasty it's been in some areas of the US and Canada.

-51F was reported -- I think in Montana!! Egad folks, cars don't like that. The worst I ever been in was about -40F and my car start "knock on wood" but I wouldn't have blamed it if it didn't.

The trick here is to waste some fuel and go out for ungaraged cars and run them till you feel heat and they will take many hours to actually be the ambient temp after that.

Keep doing that and you should be ok to go. Don't leave a car for days in super cold and expect it to run for you,

Have a great day, T
