Hopefully these tips are helpful. The weather has been horrible here with snow ever couple of days which has put a hamper on filming my regular How-To videos. Hopefully the snow melts soon! I have some awesome videos coming!!!

The best recomendation I can gave personally is , have a old car to use in winter and don't use the new cars to avoid the corrosion , and if your going to use your new car , put grease underneath the chasis and the floor , in my experience the car does not rust , you have to spread the grease well that covers everything and withuot much excess and after the winter wash it with degreaser and put 6-56 marine oil to lubricate all , I do it personally and it works but if you can not use new cars in winter better. And follow the tips of the video , very good ideas.

@TheClumsyNinja Wow! Thanks! I really appreciate this. I will have to research this model. "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" Romans 3:23 "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8 "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23 "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." Ephesians 2:8-9 “Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.” Romans 3:19-20 "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16 "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." Romans 10:9-10

So I have a real question for Chris. I saw on Instagram of someone drilling holes in their exhaust to make is louder, and I don't mean in the very end but in the container just before the pipe at the very back (don't know the term) can you please let me know if this is real or not. I would highly appreciate that

One more tip from russia: When its snowing, open windows and doors for 5 minutes before closing your car. It's good to cool down wind glass and snow will not melt on hot glass. Next day there is no ice on wind glass, just fresh snow 👌 Thanks for the videos!👍🏻

There is good and bad with backing in the car, if you have front wheel drive you never get stuck “wheels spinning” if you reverse, I have always (mostly) traction when reversing my front wheel in mud/snow/slippery stuff. I have always driven in to park when it isn’t plowed or whatever “risk to get stuck” case it might be, and always got out.

shuttsco snow rake is the best and does not scratch your paint. Well Ive used mine for 10+ years and never scratched it. works with heavier snow too. Also, dont drive with high heat on the windshield. That way when its snowing when you drive, it wont ice up if its still snowing.

Hi, great tips, especially for me because I live in Northern Ontario where we have to deal with snow and ice for months at a time each year, plus I'm a driving instructor so always on the road. I'm guessing that silicone spray can work for frozen gas tank doors/latches, too, eh?

Hello Chris, I’ve being watching your videos they are awsome very informative, I wanted to ask you about a 2011 forester AWD, last week I try going up a tiny hill w/ snow. My front wheels kept spinning but my rear wheels did nothing.!!! I have zero codes, zero warming lights, no big noise, there’s no fuse on the fwd option. My car drives smooth, runs good. But awd doesn’t engaged Do you have any idea what could cause something like this??

Don't lift your wipers! Most winter storms are accompanied by strong wind, and I have seen many windshields cracked by wiper blades coming down during a storm. If you're concerned about freezing, use a trash bag over the wipers similar to the zip lock bag over the side mirrors.
