10-10-2001, 08:00 PM
I bought a 2000 Mercury Gran Marquis in 6/2000. As of now it only has 6500 miles on it. I've changed the oil 4 times so far. My wife only uses it to go to church and visit her family. Otherwise, we use our other vehicles. Should I give it any special treatment for just sitting around? This ain't no **. Any suggesitions will be appreciated!!!!!!!!!!

not really you need to take it for a drive every once in a while though to let condinsation out of the engine and to keep other thing working ok it is really hard on one to do hort trip driving and to not drive one at all

After the car has set, as with any car make sure the engine warms up before driving. When your car sets for a while all the oil drains to the oil pan. Just make sure the oil is pumped up to the heads before driving. Dont just hop in and go, this is very harsh on the valve train.
