long term maintenance

Postby tlr » Thu Jun 30, 2011 6:53 am

I am sure there is a long list of things to do to a 20 year old car and I have done many to my '90, I am wondering if there is a list of things to watch for and do other than basic maintenance to do to keep a "classic" running well. She has been a summer driver, with very low mileage.

Fluids: Brake fluid, Coolant, Tranny fluid, Diff fluid, and then depending on driving feedback, suspension bushings, engine mounts, shocks and other consumables and expendables. I would also buy a can of contact cleaner and some Nyogel and as time permits, I would undo all of the electrical connectors and give them a spray of contact cleaner and a thin coat of Nyogel. Also I would remove all the grounds and clean the mounting surfaces, and reinstall them and lightly coat them with Nyogel or some other battery terminal grease.
