Latest update date: February 14, 05

Many cases lead to the situation that the car has not run for a long time such as going on a long business trip, going on a long-term business trip abroad, damaged vehicles cannot be repaired, cars are temporarily detained by traffic police and lead to damaged errors The following are common:

Tire damage

After not using the car for a long time, we can observe that the tire seems to have flattened due to a decrease in air pressure inside the tire. If you leave the tire flat for a long time, after pumping the air pressure in, it will not be possible to make the wheel round as it was before. 

Because the flat position is deformed, after the pump is no longer round, it will cause the phenomenon of tire jumping that is no longer smooth when sitting inside.  In addition, when the car is left in the parking lot for a long time in sunny weather, the plasticizer additives in the rubber will degrade, causing the tire to harden and crack, which is easy to explode.

Damage to fuel and fuel pump

Fuel that has not been used for a long time will also be degraded and the combustion process is no longer effective. If you can start the engine, you should drive to a service center to check and replace those old fuels. Or maybe worse, the car won't start, contact the rescue team for assistance.

According to recommendations from experts, if the car is left unused for too long, it is best to reduce the fuel in the tank, leaving only 10 to 15 liters to ensure that the fuel pump does not die and minimize the risk of fire and explosion.

Degradation of engine lubricating oil
