What To Do When a Cold Engine Is Hard To Start
by: Jakob Jelling

  Starting a car with a cold engine can be very difficult sometimes
and it can become a real obstacle for those who live surrounded
by extremely cold weathers. This way, for all those who might
experience this problem it is not only important to learn how to
overcome it but also why it happens in order to be able to
prevent it as much as possible as well.

  Another reason by which a cold engine might have problems to
start is caused by the fact that oil becomes much thicker in cold
than the way it is in hot. Oil, like any other liquid changes its
consistency when it is exposed to very low temperatures as well
as it changes back when it is in a very hot weather, and this
might cause oil to have problems at the time of circulating in
the car engine.

  Besides the engine, car batteries might experience problems while
being in cold weathers as well and this could affect the engine.
Batteries function through chemical reactions which loose agility
while being cold and therefore, in such circumstances, batteries
don't function properly. When this happens, the car energy
becomes affected and this causes problems for the engine start.

  If these three problems happen together, starting an engine might
become a really hard task to achieve. In order to overcome the
lack of gasoline evaporation problem, you can spray ether into
the engine which would evaporate quickly and help the engine
start. Besides this, you can also to prevent having oil too thick
which wouldn't circulate properly by using thin synthetic oils.
You should also try to maintain the car isolated from cold as
much as possible, but by using the two last mentioned methods you
would experience much less problems at the time of staring the
car in cold weather.

  Cold engines might experience problems at the time to start due
to different reasons. One of these reasons can be based on the
effect which cold has on liquids evaporation. When it is cold,
gasoline evaporates less and this cause it to be more difficult
to burn due to the fact that it is burnt when it is evaporated.
