what things should I drain etc... to keep my gtr healthy and problem free if it was to sit all winter in garage? Sorry if this is a noob question
Great to know, i'm going to try this.I've always heard its a bad idea to put cars on stands for a long amount of time. Modern day cars/suspension are designed to be under load 100% of the time. Putting a car on stands can mess with sensors and computers is my understanding. A common way to avoid flat spots is to park your car on some carpet squares. I tried this with my last car and it seemed to work just fine.
^ This. Definitely do NOT let the susp hang for extended periods of time.You don't need to drain anything. I've been storing cars over the winter for 12 years. You really don't even absolutely have to put car on jackstands, just fill the tires to 40 psi and they won't flatspot. Keep a battery tender on it or simply disconnect the negative and it will usually not lose more than 25% juice as long as it's not in the sub-zero temps in your garage. To avoid rust from condensation on cold garage floors, put a tarp down first, then park the car on top.
