OMG, where to start. The engine was sitting for about 3 years, did a oil change and flushed all fluids. Ran for about 3 hours before it started to stall than finally died. It wasnt sparking so i went down the line, the coil was working but the dist was not, so i replaced the entire unit, cap and rotor also, and all 6 plugs are lighting fine now. Also, have pulled out the fuel rail and the injectors are spitting as they should. My headlighs didnt also work, and the check engine light was not coming on. Inidcating that the ecm could be faulty. I replaced the ecm. Headlights work now, but the engine still doesnt want to start when it gets turned over. All fuses are fine and have replaced the relays. Anyone figure this out?

You should try checking the fuel pressure to see if it too low. If the pump sat for a long time like that and then was turned on for awhile it may have bought the farm. It may still be pumping, but just not enough. Try givng it a compression check as well just to see if it has any problems there.

the problem was changing that fluid! rarely happen, but it will happen when people change transmission fluid on older car then the car messed up. when you change the fluid you washed all the friction material on the clutch surface by putting in new fluid.
1. Charger battery 2. Flush / change all fluids (ie, engine oil, coolant, transmission oil if automatic) 3. Replace brake fluid - complete flush should be carried out once every 12 months 4. Check tyre of flat spots from sitting in one position for so long 5. You may also need to replace all filters - air, fuel and oil off course 6. When running (if it starts), run with the heater on hot to flush the heater core. 7. Go to the owners manual and find the service section and perform a FULL service, check off items not noted above.
i hope you changed all the fluids. New oil,coolent,trans. oil and draind all the old fuel. if not the fuel injecters need to be cleaned but first check to see if the crankshaft can be turned if you can you may save that engine.
It's normal for the oil pressure to fall off at idle as it gets warmer because the oil gets thinner. It should operate between about 20 and 60 lbs. If it drops below 10 lbs at hot idle, you may have some bearing wear or a worn pump.
I had a geo metro that sat a long time and the gas turned to varnish. You will need to drop the tank, clean out the gunk, put in a new fuel pump and and filter and flush the fuel lines out to the injectors.
Sounds like the thermostat is working properly, the only other cause for the valve/lifter noise could be the oil pump is not pumping enough oil up to the top of the motor. I suggest doing an oil change(if you haven'y aleready), be sure to flush several quarts through, after sitting for 5 years I'm sure the old oil is pretty sludgy, this well help rule out this possibilty. As far as the water pump goes, It either works or doesn't typically when they are on there way out the will leak from the gaskets. A bad head gasket would cause white smoke form the exhaust as coolant get's into the oil and is burned off, so I don;t hink this is the problem.
Here's a start for you, hope this helps and good luck
