How to protect my car from the extreme winter conditions in Chicago

Over the past few days in Chicago, as well as many other parts of the country, we experienced incredibly low temperatures which had a major impact on our daily lives. Many of us had difficulties getting to work or even going to the grocery store in these extreme weather conditions. Commuting from one place to another has been a nightmare and using your car in these conditions may be hard, or in some cases impossible. Some of us have not been able to even start their vehicles due to the extremely cold weather that we have been dealing with over the past weeks.

At Van 3 Auto Transport we are here to help you make the best decision for yourself and your car in these extreme winter conditions. We would encourage you to go to a warmer part of the country and bring your vehicle with you. How does Florida sound? California? We know that when you are not able to get to work, you might as well make the most of it and visit your friends or relatives for a few days in a warmer part of the country.

If you decide to stay home the following tips will help you start your car in the freezing conditions.
If your car has an engine with a carburetor you can push on the gas pedal while the car is still in its parking spot and you are trying to start it. This will inject some fuel in the engine, which may help you start your vehicle. This only works with cars that have a carburetor and are not with fuel-injected engines.

Another tip that is really useful when you want to start your car in winter conditions is to turn off all lights, radio, and heaters in order to have a bigger chance of starting your vehicle.

Do not try to start the vehicle many times without waiting some time. It is best to wait at least 20 seconds before trying to start the car again order for the battery to recover.
If you want to avoid doing these things, we would suggest take the battery inside with you, that way it will have no problem starting the next day.

The easiest thing to do it to store your vehicle in a garage. Your car will be protected from the snow and will not have any problems starting it due to the warmer temperature in the garage.
