Vehicles are prone to various conditions when driving in the cold winter, especially when driving in bad weather, so you need to pay attention to the operation method, so as to avoid danger. Therefore, it is necessary to maintain the car early in the winter.
Do not freeze the window with ice
In winter, vehicles parked outdoors often have a layer of frost. Common icing parts include doors, sunroofs, brakes, tires, hand brakes, etc., which causes trouble for the vehicle. Some worried owners will take it directly. Pouring water.
Countermeasure: If you want to de-ice, you can start the engine first, turn on the warm air in the car, and use the special snow and ice shovel for the car glass to slowly remove the ice from the ice gap. If there is no snow shovel, use a larger hard plastic bottle cap to scrape slowly on the glass.
It should be noted that in the case that there is ice or ice has not been completely removed, do not open the sunroof, because forcibly open, it is easy to damage the sunroof motor and rubber seal. Be sure to wait until the temperature inside the car rises until the sunroof glass and sealant frame are thawed before opening.
It is best to park the vehicle indoors if conditions permit. If you can only park outdoors, you should also choose to park in a sunny, sheltered, flat, dry place. At the same time, place the air conditioner in the inner loop position to prevent the windshield from freezing.
Continuous start no more than 3 times
At low temperatures, many vehicles encounter difficulties during start-up and sometimes turn off during driving.
Countermeasure: The startup time is preferably controlled within 5 seconds. If the startup is unsuccessful for 3 times, it should be stopped for a few minutes before continuing to start, so as not to damage the battery.
Brake is not working in time
In winter, the temperature is low and the brake fluid becomes thicker, which will affect the normal use of the brake system to a certain extent, thus reducing the flexibility of braking. In addition, the slippery ground makes the friction coefficient smaller and can also cause the brake to fail.
Countermeasure: Keep the brake system in good condition. Pay attention to check the brake fluid and keep it within the normal range. Adjust the tightness of the hand brake and always pull the hand brake when parking. In addition, after long-term use in summer, the free stroke of the clutch should be adjusted to make the clutch more precise. At the same time, it is necessary to check the tires in time, and the tire pressure should reach the scope specified by the automobile manufacturer. If the tread is too shallow, the new tire should be replaced in time.
Fog, please open the cold wind
In the winter, because of the large temperature difference between indoor and outdoor driving, in the weather with high humidity, fog is often attached to the glass, which affects the driver's sight.
Countermeasure: Use cold air to blow against the front windshield to reduce the temperature difference between the inside and outside of the glass to achieve the effect of defogging; or use the defogging heating device inside the vehicle to achieve the rear window demisting.
Don't accelerate, brake
In winter, there are many rains and snows, the road surface is slippery, the friction coefficient between the tire and the ground is reduced, and the driver's control of the vehicle becomes difficult. If the operation is improper, the vehicle may be skid.
Countermeasure: Do not lift the clutch and accelerate suddenly during starting or driving. Do not slam the steering wheel, drive at a constant speed, and control the speed, not too fast.
When the vehicle needs to be decelerated, the low-speed method can be used to fully use the engine brake. Try to use less emergency braking or use point braking. During the driving process, properly increase the distance between the front and rear vehicles to prevent sudden braking, and also pay attention to the distance from the left and right vehicles.
