Wintering


Recommended Posts

Was wondering, what best things I can do to help my car out. Sadly, the garage is now full of crap and until such time as its unfilled with crap the car is outside. its got a nice cover on it, but alas its still outside. So was thinking, fluids and about starting it when its minus temperatures? not a good idea in the mornings but what to do to make it as comfy as possible?

Hire skip, empty garage. Job done.

 

Aside from that, make sure you have the correct grade of oil and you have anti-freeze in the water. I'm presuming you're still using it regularly ? If not, then don't start it just for the hell of it - does more harm than good.

Surely if its left for more than a few months your likely to have issues with brakes seizing and the like.

Im in a similar position dont think the mrs will be happy with me skiping the freezer and drier so will be wintering under cover, was planning on starting and running it down the road once a month or more.

Was going to give car a good clean and wax before covering, leave handbrake off half a brick should do the job.
