Thank you everyone ahead of time who takes a moment to answer my questions and give me any pointers and information to help!
So I am wrapping up my undergraduate degree this coming Spring and have decided to again live on campus to save some serious commuting time. It feels so good and exciting to be finally done with my undergrad education and starting graduate school early in the Summer this coming year! With that said though, I do have a few questions that the smart folks around here could answer, please.
--- --- --- --- ---
1 - How bad is it for a car to not be started and/or driven for two weeks at a time during a five month period? In other words, I will be coming home every other weekend for a day or two, from early January until the middle of May or so.
2 - When I park the car in the garage I should have it in neutral with the emergency brake up correct? Not first gear or reverse and the emergency brake down?
3 - Should I add some extra air to each tire before parking it in the garage and monitor tire pressure each time I come back before/during/after driving the vehicle?
4 - Does anyone recommend me putting socks or clothing or rags to close off the exhaust tips from dirt/dust and animals?
5 - I will wash the car before storing it for the first two or three weeks, but do I need to wash it before each other weekend when I am gone for two weeks at a time? What about a full car cover?
6 - Should the car doors be locked and windows up almost all the way with a small crack to let air in and out for ventilation?
7 - After I turn the car on after it has been sitting there for two weeks, how much time should I give for it to warm up before driving it around?
8 - What can I do to prep the car to be in a good setting before storage? In other words, besides filling up the tank to full and cleaning the trunk of the car all out, of course.
9 - Any tips and/or information that anyone here suggests for me having the car stored for two weeks at a time of no driving for about five months straight?
