Motorists urged to prepare for frigid temperatures
INDIANAPOLIS — Extremely cold temperatures are expected to hit Hoosiers throughout the next 48 hours and AAA Hoosier Motor Club is asking motorists to plan ahead.
Cold weather can adversely affect automobiles in a number of ways — tire pressure can drop considerably, batteries become less effective, engine belts lose a certain amount of flexibility and hoses are put under considerable stress.
Do the following ahead of time:
u Make sure your gas tank is filled up at least half way to avoid fuel line freeze-up
u be sure your tires are properly inflated
spray a general purpose lubricant into key holes to prevent frozen locks
be sure to prepare a roadside emergency kit consisting of no less than a bag of abrasive material (sand, salt or cat litter), a small snow shovel and snow brush, traction mats, a flashlight with fresh batteries, ice-thawing window-washing solvent, gloves or mittens, an ice scraper, a cloth or paper towels, booster cables, a blanket, warning flares or triangles, a fully-charged cellular phone with emergency numbers, and non-perishable food/snack items
If you encounter frozen locks spray a lubricant or de-icing fluid from a warm can directly into the lock, cup your hands together and blow warm air directly into the key holes. Do not force a key or other item into the lock and never pour hot water on or into a frozen lock.
