Hi again everyone,

So I stored my 1992 Brougham yesterday for the winter (it gets real cold in Montreal, plus the snow and salt KILL cars here)....I disconnected my battery terminals, and covered every inch of the car with a huge car cover....

I have heard from people that it is not good to let a car sit in a garage for a long time (im planning to not drive 4-5 months), and that I should turn on the car and let it idle once a week for half an hour or something.............Is this true????

Also, they say that it is not good to let a car sit on it's shocks for a long time (I have 2 air shocks in back, 2 new gas shocks in front), and I should let the car sit on jacks or cinder blocks if I'm not gonna drive for a while.....Is this true of false????

I just want to be sure I am doing everything right so I don't get any surprises next spring...Any help and info would be appreciated.

Thank you all again.......

Just change the oil and take the battery out of it and levae it alone until the spring. It's worse for the engine to start it every week like that then it is if you don't do anything at all. Same with putting it on jack stands, just park it and forget about it.
