Looking at the weather forecast, looks like I'll be spending my Friday cleaning the car and putting her under the cover for hibernation...:mad:

What's everyone's normal winter maintenance? Here's what I'm thinking...

Oil change
Full detail
Pull and check plugs
Full tank of fuel
Clean air filter
Baking soda box on the floor
Cover

Then :alcoholictill I can take her back out in the spring:dunno:

Full synthetic oil change + car cover

What I do from there is park it in an underground parking lot. I start it once every 1-2 weeks and drive it for about 30 minutes strictly underground. I can get it to around 20 miles per hour max 1st/2nd gear. That get's her going a bit.

That's how I baby my baby for the winter. Never driven outside in the snow.

Check oil
Slap on four winter wheels with snow tires
Check tire pressure
Drive

Actually, I try to drive very little in the winter, especially if there is salt on the ground.
I managed to go half the winter last year without getting any dirt on the car whatsoever.
