Question about Cars & Trucks
Assuming that the engine can be turned over with the starter, the most likely culprit is it's not getting enough fuel, especially if it's been sitting for 6 months or more. AT YOUR OWN RISK, remove the air duct after the air cleaner and pour a shot-glass full OR LESS of gas directly into the carburetor or throttle body. It should start and at least run briefly. If it does, then add at least 3-5 gallons to the fuel tank. If you've run out of gas, then adding just one gallon is not enough. Today's fuel-injection systems have pressurized fuel lines which need at least a gallon just to fill all the pumps and filters between the tank and the engine. Good Luck, TechJoel
