Long time parked

Ungelesener Beitragvon Vinicius Djabak » 17.07.2005, 22:58

Hello guys, how are you doing?
It's me again, Vinicius from Brazil (black sedan).
I have 2 questions, it's kind of simple ones;

1- I usually starts my Plus and take it for a ride only 1 time per week, short distances, 10-20km, and sometimes, when it takes more than a week for me to start the engine, when i do, it blows out some huge amount of white smoke. Is that bad???

2- What are the precautions thet we must have when letting the car parked for long periods??

I hope you can help me on that.
Thanks []''s

An attempt to answer your questions, actually from Amsterdam.

1. White smoke can be a sign of serious trouble: leaking head gasket. The coolant comes into the combustion chamber and produces white smoke. But your engine should run irratic as well. Maybe not the case...Check your coolant at a specialist, he can detect burnt fuel in your coolant with a probe. Or your fuel is getting bad after 6 months or so.

2. If you park your car for a long period you should drive it for 20 km or so. Maybe you should drive your car 250 km, because you have already water in your oil (as a result from short trips). Have your battery charged 1/2 hr per day (time clock switch in the mains).

Take care!

If it is just water the first minuite or so it is most probable due to wather that has gathered inside the exaust. Nothing to worry about.
