One of the worst things is coming back to a boiling hot car and not being able to cool down Here are some tips and tricks for the summer.
Keeping cool whilst parked.
Look out for shady places. If there are none cover the seats and interior with blankets and towels. Also try and attach sunshades in the car.
Wipe down the steering wheel with waters. This will cool the surfaces down.
Keep cool when driving
Try and get a tinted window insert (be careful as there is a legal limit to the amount of tint). Keep antifreeze in the car for emergencies. Make sure tyres are properly inflated. Try not to use air-con too much as it can make the engine too hot.
Sometimes you may find yourself in a situation where your battery is Almost flat and you have no access to jump leads. Here is another way of starting your car. (MANUAL transmission only!)
Note: if the car has power steering, the steering wont work until the engine starts. This is the same with the brakes after a few presses.
As long as the car attempts to start up this should work. If the battery is completely flat this method will probably not work and you may need to charge the battery up over night.
Step One- Get in the car. Turn off all electric using devices (this does include a charger attached to a phone) take the handbrake off and put the car into second or third gear keeping your foot on the clutch.
