    Should do a video on the importance of using your indicators(blinkers). Lots of folks don’t even know such a thing exists.

    Boiling water is insane, but just above room temperature should work pretty well. If you can't keep your hand in it it's probably too hot.

    Scotty lives in Texas where it rarely snows. 24 inch snowfall in January is not uncommon in Chicago. We go through wiper blades once a year.

    One tip for the windshield wipers in winter is if you know it's going to rain or snow, pull them back away from the windshield. Most cars these days have wiper arms that pivot outward, mainly so you can clean the windshield, but it's an easy thing to do. Just don't forget to fold the wipers back down when you are ready to drive the car or open the hood, etc. I used to never do this, but I got sick of having to clean off the wipers and have them stuck to the windshield. Takes 2 seconds when you get out of the car to do this.

    Another small tip if there is snow on the ground... don't let your tire pressure run extremely low, BUT you can let it run a few PSI under there recommended pressure. This will allow the tire to sag a little but will give you a little more tire contact area and can help a little with traction. So if you're tires say they need 35 psi, I'd say if you're at 32 or 33 psi you're still fine. If you do a lot of high-way driving then this isn't as big of a concern. What you don't want to have happen is let them run low, like to 20 PSI because it is true that you wil have problems at that point, but letting them run a little low (2-3 psi low) has its benefits. HOwever, do NOT do this if you are towing a trailer or carrying a lot of cargo as this can increase the heat generated on the tire, but for normal driving in snow, this is usually fine.

    Happened to a car of mine blowing the wiper motor and I couldn't understand why so I asked my wife what she did when leaving work and if it was freezing ( she works nights) so she said I put the heater on for a minute or two then scrape the windscreen,mmm I asked do you lift the wipers off the screen before using them? nope, problem solved, so I told her that the last few shifts she worked were for the mechanic then she blamed me for not showing her how to do things properly, women humph they can always find a way to blame someone else

    Problem with #1 Though I'd never pour boiling water on my windshield.....I'm not a scientist but I imagine the temperature contrast is very very bad for the glass.....at least in my state it's illegal to have your car idling more then five minutes and that's not likely enough time for the defrosters to work and clear enough of the ice so you can drive.

    note to self when I move to Alaska make sure car tires have tubes in them that way there will be no air pressure lost when pulling out on a freezing day
