    I've read that you should never leave your wiper arms up... They hinge for maintenance purposes, but aren't meant to be left up, it weakens the springs and reduces the pressure of your wiper blades on the glass.

    On last winter in Ukraine we have 27 celsium degrees negative. Yes, we use all of that tips, because if you dont do this - you cant penetrate in you'r car after couple hours after ride. Another one tip for really low degrees winter - take off battery and take it in the house. Dont get your battery freeze.

    Being from Montreal, Canada, where winter is long, we use high-quality brushes with plastic scraper all winter. Saves time. So it is really important to do these: - Wax car at least once a year. - Oil Change every year. - Rust-proof every year. - Check tire pressure every month. - Have a box full of fluids, cleaners and microfiber laying in the trunk. - When removing snow, make sure the exhaust is in the clear and then start the car to warm up the engine and to de-ice the windows better. - Have an emergency kit in the car at all times, spare tire is a must with road conditions. - Get good winter tires. - Get a pen paint that matches your car paint, there's always someone who bumps your parked car. - Sing "I will survive" and "Living on a prayer". - Eat baguette and fromage. - Compliment someone for bad driving, staying positive, etc. - Avoid Montreal roads.

    Actually, reverse is the gear with the most torque. So backing up through snow is better on reverse if you keep the front wheels straight.

    In the UK we dont get a lot of snow but when we do, I use barely warm water and use that on the icy areas.... heck even cold tap water will melt the ice... its ice so its below 0.c, cold tap water is hotter than that hence it melts. Water on the driver door, enough to gain access, and they start the car and let idle and get warm, while clearing lights is usually suffice for me.

    All those tips are cute but if you want to level up, be like us in central Canada - skip every step in this video and get a remote starter. Start your vehicle from the house 20 minutes before you go and the windshield will be clear. The rest of the snow will fly off the vehicle while you're driving

    One more reason to back up the car faced the street is, of course when you have a dead battery and you need to bring your neighbor to give you a boost. It happened to me just yesterday. I had bad battery knowing will disappoint me in the morning, so I patched inside a garage face outside. Good enough when I woke up , battery was dead so my neighbor came over n gave it a boost no problem. Do it people where you have snow in your area

    I'm a huge fan of your videos! You've turned me from someone who knew nothing about cars into a person who has saved thousands of dollars on my vehicles (started with basic brake jobs, then replaced all calipers, have done spark plugs, and now I'm going to do the front suspension this weekend). Once you learn how to do one thing, it's easy to build skills and confidence to try other things (like changing the alternator belt and spark plugs in my boat--a job that one marina said would cost $500, but I did it for $40). Would you please do a video on how to deal with extensive rust on the underside of a truck/car? I live in a big snow region with lots of salt and have a major rust problem on one car and want to prevent it on the '08 Tundra I bought this year (which only has minimal surface rust at this point since I bought it in Texas). There are other videos out there, but I trust your work more than anyone else. Thank you!!
