Welcome to the cold world!It’s been super cold here recently, well I was checking on my engine and giving my battery a jump and look what I was greeted by!

If you want to start the engine in severe frost, then first check the battery. The most important thing in a battery is the density of the electrolyte. It must be at least 1.27 grams per cubic centimeter. If the density is less, then the electrolyte in the battery may freeze. This will bulge the case and damage the plates inside.
In very cold weather, we sometimes pour a little bit of gasoline directly into the intake manifold through the throttle valve. This makes it easier to start older engines.
If the car has a manual transmission, then you need to depress the clutch before starting. When the engine starts, you can not turn the steering wheel for the first 5 - 10 minutes. The oil in the power steering system becomes very thick and can squeeze out the rubber seals in the steering rack.
And so that the windshield does not burst, immediately after starting, turn on the blowing of the glass and then it will gradually heat up along with the car. If you warm up the car and turn on the warm air supply immediately, the windshield may crack. In Russia, this is a frequent case in winter.
