Do not Race Your Engine!

If autumn comes, can winter be far behind? Most drivers didn’t know how to maintain car or drive safely in the winter. According to the statistic from the highway law enforcement department: car accidents because of improper vehicle maintenance have been more than 50 since this year started. So today we are going to tell you some car maintenance skills in the winter.
Vehicle maintenance experts say: when temperature drops in the winter, hot your car before driving is very necessary. However, lots of car owner think that in-situ long idling hot car would be better for the car before driving. Because they consider vehicle as a human, work better after proper “exercise”. But on the contrary, statistical data shows, 90% components of the engine wore out happens in three minutes after you starting your engine. Therefore, in winter, especially freezing days, in-situ long idling hot car has not only limited effect, but would also wore away your engine. Vehicle maintenance experts suggest that in order to hot the car, you should drive your car in low rpm.
Why we need to hot our cars? Because after a long parking, the oil in the engine reflow to the engine sump tank, it takes about 30 seconds before the lubricant was pump to piston, connecting rod and crankshaft. Then you can drive at 2000 rpm for about 3 to 5 minutes before driving your car at the normal speed.
Although hot your car is necessary, in-situ long idling hot car is not desirable. The engine work alone and other components don’t move, so the kinetic energy cannot be converted. Only after you starting slowly driving your car can improve the working condition of the engine. The right way to hot your car is, 30 to 60 seconds after ignition hit the road, but you mustn’t drive in high speed. Otherwise, the abrasion of your engine and gearbox is irreversible.
