Do you have more than one car, thus want to park one because you barely drive it. If you are traveling and need to park your car till you come back from your trip, here are some maintenance tips that will help sustain your car’s durability.
PARK YOUR CAR IN A SHADE
It will be wise for you to park your car in a garage while traveling. You could as well park it under the shade in a situation where you don’t have a garage. You could cover it with a car cover. This will save the car from harsh weather conditions, dusts or even prevent kids from scratch your car.
DO NOT ENGAGE HAND BRAKE
Don’t engage the car’s hand brake for the car you won’t drive for a while. This is because the brake pads could get stuck and will cost you some money when you are ready to drive the car. Rather use wheel chocks otherwise called wedge to prevent your car from rolling.
FILL THE FUEL TANK
One of the problem you will encounter after parking a car for a long time is a leaking fuel tank due to rusting in the tank. However, you could avert such scenario by filling your fuel tank before parking the car.
It’s better you service your car engine before parking it for a long time. It will also be nice you remove the car’s battery from the car especially if you won’t be around for long.
