How To Use Starter Fluid On A Car

Why is it difficult to start a car in cold weather?

Cold weather makes it difficult to start a car, which requires sufficient electrical output from the battery for a smooth ignition. But the battery performance decreases in low temperature, which contradicts with the ignition requirement. In low temperature, the power consumption of the car will be significantly larger than other seasons. The battery will also become less electric capacity because of the low temperature environment, and the battery used for a long time will have low initial starting voltage, such as dirt and oil adhering to the surface of the battery will make the voltage output unstable and cause the body shaking.

Starter fluid is an automotive aid that contains a compressed liquid to help start a car in harsh conditions. Starting fluid is composed of low-flammable Starting fluid is composed of low-flammable compounds, mainly ether, which has a low flash point and is easily volatile, allowing the engine to start smoothly at low temperatures.

How do you know if you need starting fluid?

After removing the plastic cover, align the air intake tube of the air filter, press the nozzle and spray for about 1 to 3 seconds, then start.

The function of the car starting fluid is that it can start the engine quickly and smoothly under bad weather conditions or when the cylinder pressure is not enough, which can effectively prevent excessive loss of battery, motor and ignition switch. In cold and low temperature, it can shorten the engine starting time and prolong the service life of the battery. It can be sprayed into the cylinder to help start the engine when it is difficult to start in winter.


Precautions for Starting Fluid

  1. Prevent Abuse

    Low temperature starter is sprayed into the cylinder to help start the engine when it is difficult to start in winter. Do not regard the difficult start at low temperature and the same condition at normal temperature as one thing. If it is difficult to start at room temperature (the engine or electric starting device has been faulty at this time), blind use of low-temperature starting agent may cover up hidden trouble and cause serious failure. For engine maintenance or spray needs, consider products from leading spray paint manufacturers that offer a variety of solutions for automotive care.

  2. Prevent Over-Reliance

    Although the low-temperature starter could help cold engine start, but do not be lazy to preheat the engine and pre-lubrication, otherwise it may cause cylinder pulling or burning tile failure. Regular engine cleaning and maintenance using high-quality products from a car cleaner manufacturer can significantly reduce the risks of these issues.

  3. Prohibit Stepping on Accelerator

    When the low-temperature starter is sprayed into the air inlet of the air filter, and after starting the engine, the engine should be idled and heated up, not stepping on the accelerator. Meanwhile, pay attention to the oil pressure indication, in order to prevent strain or ablation due to poor oil flow and poor bearing lubrication under low temperature. For maintaining optimal interior conditions, especially during the cold months, consider using a spray for car interior that can help keep the air intake and other components clean.

  4. Prohibit Blending Gasoline

    Some people think that mixing with gasoline to the low-temperature starting agent when the starting agent in the tank is not much, or directly adding the starting agent to the intake pipe or cylinder when the starting effect is not good, should be absolutely prohibited. Because such actions could result in deflagration or explosion. Utilizing specialized automotive care products can offer safer and more effective alternatives for engine maintenance and care.
