Question about 1984 Toyota Celica
If the car has been sitting for 8 months to a year, do I need to clean the gas tank before I turn it on. In other words, how long can gas sit before it deteriorates to the point that it may clog up fuel injectors or cause other problems?

This is an article I found on gas. I have had this happen to me and if the gas goes bad in lawn mowers I'm sure the same thing will happen in cars just not as common due to cars usually don't sit around.
I would try putting a gas stabilizer in and run that tank of gas till almost empty then fill it and see if the problem is still there.
Also take a look under the hood and look at the wires and vacuum hoses animals seems to like chewing on them some times.
If none of this works repost but let us know if the battery was dead at any time and if the check engine come on while the engine is running.
