My car was stored for the last 6 month in a heated warehouse. Now that spring arrived, I decided to get my car on the roads again. Oil was changed last summer, coolant was flushed in september and valve adjsutement was done in may 07. I did 4000 km since may 07... what are the major items I have to do for maintenance to get the car on the road safely? thanks!!

Tyre pressures.

I'd do another oil and filter change just for good measure.

After your first careful drive, make sure your brake calipers are working properly

Charge or replace battery

Can of fuel injector cleaner in the gas tank.

I've never done this before (store a car) so I'm just winging it, no doubt other members have first hand experience...

Also check all pipe work for cracks, especially the large intake hose ( look underneath it as well) as it is prone to cracking resulting in the wrong air/fuel ratio.
