Even if you're not using your vehicle a ton right now, you still have to care for it to ensure its parts won't malfunction. For tips on how to do just that, read this post that John O Brown in Show Low has put together for you.

Many of us are staying at home due to the situation the world is going through right now. As a result, we are not using our vehicles as much as we normally do. However, even if your vehicle is parked away for months, it still needs to be maintained. As a matter of fact, having an parked vehicle at home can cause some stress on its parts. To make sure your vehicle is good to go for the next time you can use it, follow the tips mentioned in the post below.

Keeping your vehicle in mint condition will help it remain ready to go at all times. Browse AMSOIL's online shop or call John O Brown at (520) 444-2634 to find the best products for it, like the top synthetic oil in Show Low.

Car Care Tips for When You Aren't Using It

Keep the Battery Alive

It should go without saying that your vehicle's battery is incredibly important for its functioning (so much so, in fact, that without it, your vehicle wouldn't even turn on). Unfortunately, if you don't use your vehicle regularly, the battery can lose all of its charge. Still, there's an easy way to prevent this annoying scenario from taking place. All you have to do is hop on your car and turn it on for a couple of minutes a week. If you forget and your battery dies, however, all you'll need to do then is jumpstart it with your jumper cables.

Take Care of Tires

Your vehicle weights a lot which is why it's no wonder that your tires are put into a lot stress from simply having to carry that weight up. When your vehicle is parked for months at a time, that weight and stress can cause some damage on the tires (e.g. they can start to flatten out). Once again, there's an easy way to take care of your tires: taking a quick spin around the block will move the tires and will help distribute the vehicle's weight on them. After this period is over, make sure to have them checked to ensure they're good to go.

Allow the Fluids to Warm Up

Something else to consider are the fluids in your vehicle. As you may be aware, your vehicle requires synthetic oil, gasoline, coolant, transmission fluid, among other oils, in order to work as expected. Inactivity, however, can take a toll on them, making them go stale, and wreaking havoc on your vehicle once you start using it again. Taking your vehicle for a quick spin at least once a week can guarantee that all of those fluids will warm up and won't separate.

Keep your engine as strong and healthy as possible with the use of  AMSOIL Signature Series 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil, the most effective synthetic oil in Show Low.

Keep Your Vehicle Squeaky Clean

Your vehicle's cleanliness not only has to do with its looks. Letting filth, dust, and gunk sit on it for a long time can cause damage to its paint job, to its components, to its interiors, and more. For that reason, even if your vehicle will be sitting in your garage, you should keep it squeaky clean. Wash it inside and out with regularity (and even wax it every so often), so you can remove all of the damaging agents that could take a toll on your vehicle (including bugs and small animals that may want to make it their home).

Park It in a Safe and Protected Spot

Last but not least, you should find the right spot to park your vehicle in. If it's a covered area, like your garage, it will be better protected, as it will provide a shield for the intense sun and the harsh elements that could be present. If you don't have an area with a roof to park it in, you can purchase a car cover to keep it safe. Likewise, be sure to enable the alarm and use other anti-theft devices so it won't get stolen.
