Hello and thank you for using JA.


IF YOU DON'T START YOUR CAR FOR A LONG TIME, THE FIRST THING WILL BE AFFECTED IS THE BATTERY, IT WILL DRAIN THE JUICE OUT, THEN ALL THE OIL WILL BE DRAIN DOWN TO THE OIL PAN AND LIVE ALL THE MECHANICAL DRY, AND YOU'LL NEED TO LUBRICATE THEM BEFORE STARTING THE ENGINE AGAIN, THEN THE AIR IN THE TIRE WILL DRAIN OUT AS WELL, AND RUBBER WILL BE HARDENED, BUT THE BEST TO AVOID THE TIRE ISSUE IS TO JACK THE CAR UP IN THE AIR BAFORE LEAVING IT FOR A LONG WHILE.
