winter break
hi everyone, i haven't taken my 01 celica out of my garage since december 8th (cuz the winters here are really bad and i didn't want to pay the extra $$$ for insurance). now that the weather will probably warm up again, i plan on taking out my spec blue baby on march 16th. any ideas on what i should do to prep her in the meantime and after i plan on taking her out of hibernation? i was thinking of getting an oil change and recharging the battery. any other suggestions?

have you started the car once since you put the car in the garage.. because its not good for a car to sit for long periods of time

drain and refill fluids, next time you leave your car in storage, you should drain the fluids, its not good for them to just sit.
