Before those times, prople did not move around much.I was thinking reading about all the trains that have been cancelled, all the roads that are impassible, that before the age of the internal combustion engine, transport was not half so compromised.
I will check with some people I know up in Norway that have Teslas.I do wonder how electric cars cope with cold like this and how effective their cabin heaters are. i imagine if they're plugged into your home supply then you can get them to pre-warm and defrost before you get in which would be nice. Eventually one will get stuck in the snow overnight though and you can't run the engine to stay warm.
If you've not had it changed in a number of years then I would recommend doing it. Relatively easy if you can access the drain point.The liquid in my tank is browny; no nasty oil gunk.
(I will check in the cylinder head too, come to think of it. Water and oil..makes mayonaise...)
I think its ok but I will keep an eye on it. I would be gutted if it has come to harm; the car is 2004 but it went through the last two MOTs with just a few advisories; its a very good car.
Really depends on the vehicle. My Mazda Bongo takes 2 people over an hour just to bleed the air out of the system and I've had a few Hondas that had complicated bleeding processes. Most sensible cars are a doddle to do though in fairness.If you've not had it changed in a number of years then I would recommend doing it. Relatively easy if you can access the drain point.
When I last did mine (Yaris) I drained it to replace the water pump. From start to finish it took less than an hour to drain, dismantle, replace and refill. If it's just the fluid it'll be even quicker.
