The drivers take help on the different car forums who trying to find the answers every day. People would like to know why there is cold air in the glove compartment when the car is on? The drivers share a lot of their experiences with us which help us to solve specific problems and help us in an emergency.
Here we have lined down five tricks which we think are very useful for the owners of the car.
Use the glove compartment as a fridge.
You can find a nice glove compartment in modern cars. In this compartment, there is a vent which you can open to let the fresh air get inside from the air to condition the car. You cannot freeze a steak in this compartment but this compartment can be used to cool down your drinks, and you can also store sandwiches in it when you are on the road.
Many people argue over the features and benefits of this fridge compartment. For many of us, it is an unnecessary hole, and for the others, it is very convenient. Some people who love this fridge, buy this special hose to create this fridge in their cars.
Telescopic wheel wrench
The wrench is the best tool if there is a need to replace the wheel. By using a tube, you can make the wrench longer, and it will get turned into telescopic wheel wrench. It will be straightforward for you to use your weight to unscrew the nuts of the tire.
Insert a screw into the tire to drive to a mechanic
In your driving experience, you may notice the situation when someone on the road has pointed at your car tire because of which you will get to know that there is an air leak in the tire. Usually, we all do not keep the special repair kit in the car trunks. So at that time, we need to remove the whole wheel to make the car to drive.
To close up the air leakage at least for a short period, you can use the screw as shown in the picture. You should know that it is a temporary solution to stop air leakage. After making your car able to drive, you should immediately go to a mechanic.
Get ready with a solution of water and anti-freeze.
Many of us want to save our money in the warm season. So many of us use regular water for washing the windshield instead of using anti-freeze. You should know that the tank inside the car can get deformed or it may even crack if you use cold water in it.
When the temperature goes below 0-degree at night, some car drivers use anti-freeze. The liquid starts to smell during the day because the temperature is above 0-degree. You can get ready a solution to prevent the tank from destroying:
- You have to mix 0.5 gallons of anti-freeze with 0.25 gallons of distilled water.
In this way, you will get enough antifreeze and will not damage your tank.
To put the oil in the car, use a screwdriver.
You can use a screwdriver if you afraid of spilling oil. It is based on the same basic principle as a bar spoon for the cocktails. You can use a screwdriver because it is straightforward to wash it after the procedure.
Bonus: Thieves do this on the road to rob you
In the above photo, you will get to see the tube in the tire. You can close the hole in the tire made by the screw, and you can drive your car a long way.
At night, robbers do it when there is no or very little traffic on the road. The robbers place the device at the bumpy places, and when the car runs over the devices, the robbers start following it. After some time, when the driver sees the broken tire, he takes off the jack, and other tools to get it done. At this time, the robbers steal everything from the car.
