Starting A Cold Engine

Cold weather can make it difficult to start an engine. If your primary mode of transportation is unavailable, then you can't get to where you need to go. This can cause someone to miss important events or engagements. It is very possible to start a car in freezing weather but you must follow several procedures.

If a car will not start in cold weather, be sure to wait at least a minute between attempts. If the vehicle you are driving is not fuel injected, then you should push on the accelerator once or twice before turning the key. This just might help get your car started.

Of course, you should also be sure that your car's battery is new and has power. If you are dealing with an older or weaker battery, the car may not start. Applying heat to the car's engine might help get it started. Thus, if a car will not start in cold weather, you should try to use a circulator heater to help warm up the engine. If you do not have one, it may even help to use something like a wireless hair dryer.

As a preventative measure, you should try and park the car in a garage or even under something like a carport. If a car is covered in some way, it can protect the car from things like snow, ice, and strong winds.

If the car has had trouble starting in cold weather, you should then have the vehicle sit in Park or in Neutral once you do have the car started.

This will help the car warm up and will allow for the oil to heat up as well. If you start the car and drive away before letting the car run for a while, it can critically damage a vehicle.

Cold weather can make it difficult to start an engine. If your primary mode of transportation is unavailable, then you can't get to where you need to go.
