after storing my 4 year old camry for the summer in Florida, when I came back for the winter every thing worked fine except heat and ac. After 2 weeks it started working. What happened?
DB cars are never stored w/fluids you always drain: rad/block/trans/gas, disconnect battery, jack car off the gnd so tires do not develop flat spots, crack window to avoid musty smells, plug tailpipe and air snorkel to avoid mice nesting, oil all hinges etc, etc,,, there is more to storage than leaving behind a vehicle in a garage
If it was the blower that wasn't working it probably got a spot of corrosion on the armature inside the motor from sitting. Dex is right for long term storage. Six months or longer. But just for the summer, I'd disconnect the battery, fill the gas tank with premium (it degrades more slowly), and top off the fluids. In the fall let the car "yawn and stretch" back to the waking world. When you first start it up again cycle the ignition twice to pressurise the fuel system. Then start it up and just let it idle and warm up before driving it again. This way you can check the accessories, and be sure it's running ok. If an automatic transmission run the shifter through all the gears a couple times as well. Pausing at each gear for a moment. HTH. -Jim
