I recently bought 2001 z06 and live up in NH, long winters :(
Not that I am looking forward to the winter but I plan on using a heated storage and was wondering what I should do to keep the z from hibernation problems?

Welcome Aboard the Good Ship Z06 :z: :z:

Here's are some Idea's. Do a search on storing (top right of the page). You will get lots of info.


Washed and wax the exterior. Cleaned the interior.

Changed the oil immediately prior to storing her.

Filled the gas tank and added an appropriate amount of fuel stabilizer (Stabil)

Over inflated the tires to avoid flat spotting. I also placed the tires on thick carpeting.

Added silica packs to the interior to avoid moisture/mildew.

Attached a battery charger (4 stage 'float' charger) to maintain the battery.

Covered all inlets (air, tailpipes, etc) as well as any opening I can find to prevent any critters from making my Z their summer cottage. Also added mothballs in the engine compartment, on and around the tires, and around the vehicle for the same reason (critters).

Cover with a good Car cover.

Lots of ideas on this topic in Oct., IT L GO pretty well said it all. I leave the tire pressures alone but roll it on the floor a foot or so every 4 weeks. Critter defence is the most important, battery tender, fuel stabilizer.

I have heated storage as well although I don't think it is that critical.

on my older vette I ran a humidifier in it, but it was fiberglass and older

mice were a problem in the engine-trying to stay warm, and would eat at the wires and hoses, moth balls help

Crack the windows ever so slightly to take pressure off the weatherstripping.
