Storage Tips for Automobiles Before
you put the carinto storage, a few precautions will help keep it in good shape.
The fuel system can be a prime source of problems. If the car is stored with an
empty gas tank, the moisture can condense inside the system and cause all sorts
of problems like rust and corrosion. To help keep gasoline from deteriorating,
pour a fuel stabilizer into the tank. Be sure to drive the car for about 10 miles
after adding the stabilizer to make sure it gets circulated throughout the system.
It is best to store your automobile with a full tank of gas. Fill the engine
with fresh oil and then drive the vehicle for a few miles to make sure the new
oil gets thoroughly circulated. Don't
let the cooling system freeze during the winter. Drain the system (including the
radiator) and refill it with a rust-inhibiting antifreeze. A vehicle that
sits for a long period of time can ruin a set of radial tires. The best way to
save those expensive tires is to store the vehicle up on jack stands. Store
convertibles with the top up. Convertible tops can actually shrink if they are
left in the down position for an extended period of time.
