I drove through the snow about a month ago
« on: January 25, 2016, 03:41:12 PM »
I was driving through some winter wonderlands about a month ago but havent been back.

is the roadsalt still stuck to my undercarraige eating away at it for the next year or so, or am i fine?
Do I NEED to powerwash it still, at this point?

If you've driven through some rain for a while, you're fine. It's not like you drove day after day for a month let alone a whole season.

Do you have a car wash around you that does an undercarriage spray? Do that.

$5 car wash with chassis spray should do the trick.

I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn't work that way. So I stole a bike and asked God for forgiveness

get a hose or whatever and give it a rinse. Rain water is slightly acidic and is quite bad for metal, tho nowhere near as bad as road salt.

you don't need a powerwash, just a good hosing will help quite a lot.

That's crazy.  Maybe it's because my truck is white but by the time a snowsnorm finally melts here in Denver, my car is covered in black road grime and salt.  I can't imagine not washing that off for 2 solid years, haha.

Is under coating a car just a upsell everywhere else in North America? It's just a thing you do every year here. (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

My car is a mess. Its black , so everything shows. It rained a week or so ago so the worst of it got off. I just stopped caring about it after the transmission let go. Looking to upgrade soon

Hose it down really good, get the wheel wells and everything.

I drove my current car in one good Michigan winter and when I went to do the brakes this summer, it was a shit show. So much rust.

If you're still driving that Ranger, pay special attention to washing the rear frame off. The back 2 feet is where they rot the worst, and the radiator support in the front. I had almost the same truck and I had to replace the spring shackles because they disintegrated, and patch the radiator support because it rotted off.
