How to Heat Up a Car Engine

Winter is coming, and with it comes cold weather conditions that can cause car engines to lose power and stop working. If you live in a cold climate and your car’s engine doesn’t start easily in the winter, read on for tips on how to heat up a car engine.

What You’ll Need

If you’re cold, your car will be too. Car engines work best when the air around them is about 32 degrees fahrenheit, so it’s important to make sure your car’s engine is warm before starting it. Here are the basics of how to heat up a car engine:

1. Open all the windows in your car.

2. Turn on all the exterior lights.

3. Turn on your heater if it doesn’t have one.

4. Drive around for a while and let the engine warm up.

5. If you have access to a gas station, fill up your tank with gasoline and let the engine warm up again before starting the car.

The Process

If you’re driving your car in the cold weather and your engine starts to overheat, there are a few things you can do to try and get it going again.

The first thing you can do is turn off the AC and open all the windows. This will allow some air into the car and help to cool down the engine.

Next, you can try restarting the car. If the engine still over heats, you may need to take it to a mechanic or a tow truck to get it fixed.

3. If your car has air conditioning, make sure it’s turned off while you’re warming up the engine. This will save energy and help keep the engine running cool.
