Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Good day to you all. I had some summer wiper fluid in my truck wiper tank.
Temperatures have sudenly fallen to -15. How do I get it defrosted? I thought of
driving  for about 50K to see if it will melt when the engine warms up. I drove
18km yester but it still didnt melt.

You will need to park the car in a garage above freezing, let it melt, drain the fluid and add the correct fluid and squirt it a few times to get it through the lines so they don't freeze.


Add some winterized fluid and try to warm the vehicle up.
