Winter storage

Postby Chief Geek » Wed Sep 25, 2013 6:47 pm

Many people noticed that my car was drooling badly at Ascutney 2. The shaft seal on the water pump has died and I'm replacing the pump before Philo.

Is there anything I should or shouldn't refill the cooling system with before Philo?

After Philo, the car is going to be driven home (about 2 hrs), parked in my garage for invasive upgrades, and not driven again until Spring.

What should I do to the coolant, fuel, and other vital fluids before I put the car away for the winter?
