How two different weather conditions can affect battery performance?

Extreme cold weather conditions can affect the average automobile battery's life and performance. Automobile batteries produce electrons through chemical reactions. During cold weather, the battery's chemical reactions take place more slowly, thus producing fewer electrons with which to power the engine. In addition, the engine's oil thickens during cold weather, causing the engine to require up to three times as much power to turn over.


How does engine produce heat?

From the result of combustion during the power stroke of each cylinder.

Are Carbon monoxide levels usually highest during cold weather?

The carbon monoxide levels in your home may be at their highest during cold weather for a couple of reasons. First, if the weather is cold you are likely running the heater, and gas- or oil-fired heaters can produce carbon monoxide. Second, you probably keep the windows and doors closed as much as possible, trapping carbon monoxide inside the house. The carbon monoxide emitted by a car may increase when it is cold because the engine burns fuel less efficiently when the engine is cold.


How do you tell if its condensation or smoke coming from exhaust?

If it stops after a minute or two, it was condensation. If it continues the whole time the engine is running, it's smoke.

This is normal (condensation) as long as it is not engine coolant dripping out.


Why do airplanes give out white smoke while in flight?

When you see a white trail behind an airplane, that is what is known as a contrail, short for condensation trail, and it is composed of water vapor, not smoke. This condensation happens because the hot exhaust of the plane's engine meets the colder surrounding air and the mixture of cold and hot air is a sort of miniature weather front.

Your 1989 Chevy truck air-conditioner condensation drain can be found on the bottom of the air conditioner compressor. The air conditioner condensation drain routes condensation to the bottom of the engine compartment.


Your exhaust emits white smoke and drops of water even when engine warms up but no loss of coolant or overheating?

If there is no overheating or loss of coolant, most likely it is due to condensation in the exhaust system (pretty normal in cool or rainy weather).

rotation of the crankshaft


Why is there Moisture in the valve cover?

When the engine starts it is cold, as it warms up it builds heat which causes condensation to form. Since heat rises so does the condensation as it tries to excape through the PVC in the valve cover. As the engine cools it has the same effect, the valve covers are thin metal or aluminum they cool quickly but the oil in the pan is hot which causes the condensation to form on the valve covers.
