Tips and tricks/preparation to store your vehicle
Maintaining your vehicle before storage is crucial for the outcome of your vehicle after storage. If you want her to run as she did before her hibernation you should follow these handy tips and tricks.
- Storage location - Twenty 4 secure has concrete flooring to ensure no damp, no moisture and no dirt.
- Engine oil - The most important factor with engine oil is kilometres used. Modern oil, especially synthetic, is stable for a year in the engine. Fogging the engine is not necessary unless you are storing a vehicle for longer than a year.
- Wash your car - before parking your car into storage, wash the interior and exterior to avoid any contaminations for the duration of the storage period.
- Fluids - Fill your gas tank and antifreeze. Add a fuel stabilizer such as STA-BIL. Let the car run for five minutes to allow the stabilizer to flow through the fuel system.
- Tires - At the storage facility, inflate your tires to the maximum PSI rating. This will prevent the tires from developing flat spots. Leave the car in neutral with the parking brake disengaged. Here at Twenty 4 secure storage the surface is flat which is highly required to store a vehicle.
- Ventilation - Roll down the window an inch to allow air circulation and prevent moisture from gathering inside the vehicle.
- Battery - many car enthusiasts take the battery out, take it home and leave it on a piece of wood and connect it to a battery maintainer (not a trickle charger). The maintainer most popular to use is a CTEK 3300. Some newer cars require that the battery stay connected at all times to preserve the computer’s memory. In this case, you should connect the tender to the battery while keeping the hood ajar to run the cables into the engine bay.
- Best prevention - Rodents love to find their way into your car and make it their cozy home during the winter. This can wreak havoc if they chew wires. As a precaution, place a ball of steel wool in the exhaust pipe opening and air inlet, laundry fabric sheets inside the cabin and trunk and moth balls around the outside perimeter of the car.
