If you’re a vintage vehicle owner who’s pride and joy is keeping your classic car in pristine condition – A&B Transmissions is here to help by explaining ‘How To Service Your Vintage Vehicle Before Storing It’ with the following steps.
Change the Oil, Fill Your Gas Tank & Remove the Spark Plugs
Once you are ready to store your vintage vehicle for the season, be sure to bring it in for an oil change. After which add a fuel stabilizer to your premium gasoline in order to keep moisture from seeping in and gunk from building up, as well as remove the spark plugs to prevent theft.
Have Your Vintage Vehicle Detailed
You likely already detail your classic car regularly, but consider having it done professionally to ensure every corner and crevice is covered. A grain of dirt can cause scratching underneath your protective cover, as well as unwanted pests can come crawling inside the interior from leftover crumbs and such. So, an extensive cleaning and protective wax can really go a long way to maintaining your vehicle over the next few seasons.
Fill Your Tires, Check Your Battery and Top Up Your Fluids
Vintage tires are a difficult and costly thing to replace, so ensuring they are properly inflated during storage is important. As well, remove your car battery to prevent theft and corrosion, and top up your antifreeze, brake fluid and transmission fluid before you put your pride and joy to rest.
