    Nitrous troubles

    Ran my car for the first time since last august. Decided to make a pass on Nitrous and when i hit the purge nothing came out but alot of warm air. Car was put in storage with a full bottle and has sat since the end of last Aug. with the bottle turned off. Did storing it in the cold for a whole winter cause problems will I need to empty it and refill?

    That little disk for the safety blow off tube corrodes sometimes and will leak nitrous past it…might want to check that out as well as check for leaks when you fill it (or just push shop air in there and check for leaks before putting the "good stuff" back in.
