I'm not a "master" bai, but i'll share my ideas. . .
Before, I also used my ride once or twice a week (nagtitipid din sa
gasolina) 'coz we have our company service bus also, "hatid-sundo"
from house to office. I make it a point to turn ON the engine every
morning for at least 5min just to take out the moisture from the oil
& to lubricate the pistons & other parts as well so they won't rust
easily. But now I'm using it 4 to 5 times a week, so ok lang if I won't
turn it ON for 5min in the morning.
I've read from one forum that if you won't use it for a long time, say
more than one month, you should disconnect the battery 'coz it will
drain consequently, "lalo na sa set-up nating mga Carry/Every" that
our horn, headlights, hazard, brake lights can function w/o the key.
In my opinion, they can affect the discharging of the battery even
when the engine is OFF. Maybe because of the "voltage drop"
thing (i'm not sure).
They say that busted oil seals & oil leaks are some common problems
encountered by owners who don't use their vehicles for a long time.
Well, I don't know if they're true. Haven't experienced it yet, hehe. . .
Any more advise???
DRIVE SAFELY & BE COOL !!!
