Re: stowing car away for 3 weeks

put a cover on the car if its gonna rain or snow alot, disconnect battery, fuel stabilizer and run the car for 30-min or so so the stabilizer is well inside all parts, keep the gas tank FULL.

Check tire pressure when u come back

Re: stowing car away for 3 weeks

i had my lude sitting at my folks for over a month as well as my 89 cherokee. didnt do anything but start it atleast once a week. depending where you live and the type of weather around this time, you might want to cover it. but if you plan on longer storage, id go the extra mile of disconnecting the battery and the fuel stabilizer. good luck man

Why would you want to deflate the tires if only stowing for 3 weeks? Three weeks isn't long enough to do anything other then throwing a car cover over it.

Re: stowing car away for 3 weeks

that's completely contradictory. 3 weeks isnt enough time at all for car tires to deflate that much. and since you deflate them anyway, they sit there. and get horrible flat spots

Re: stowing car away for 3 weeks

For those of you that leave you car for more than a week.. Can you just get in and start it up no probs?

If I leave my lude in the garage for a week and don't touch it...it doesn't want to start..even after I got a new battery. If I start it every few days it's fine though

I would atleast put a cover on it

Re: stowing car away for 3 weeks

I leave my car off the road in the winter for 3-4 months and dont do anything to it other than leave the handbrake off and take it for the occasional spin down the road. I would never deflate the tyres are you will probally damage the tyre's side walls.
