How should I prepare my Jaguar for winter storage?

October 03, 2012

Q: I will be storing my Jaguar for the winter. Roads in my Canadian town have lots of salt on them, and I don't want my car exposed to it. What do you suggest I do before I store it?

A: I would recommend first adding a fuel stabilizer to the tank. Put about 60 psi of air pressure in the tires to keep flat spotting to a minimum.

Also, disconnect the battery. Just make sure the key will open the trunk with the lock cylinder before closing the trunk with the battery disconnected.
