Did you check the oil? Often when it sits too long, it kinda gumms up from condensation in the engine, also check your alternator, and I would bet on your spark plugs. get the new platinum tipped ones, they last forever, you can get them at autozone, advanced, and probably good ole WalMart.Good luck.

1966 Mustang won't start after sitting for 3 years - new battery


If engine wont turn over it wont do you any good to mess with the fuel filter or the carb. You didnt say if the car is an automatic or striaght stick if it is a automatic check the nutral switch on the transmission. car wont normally start if trasmission isnt in nutral or park. May want check the starter it may be drawing to much voltage

1966 mustang engine cranks but wont start


Guide to starting a dead horse!
1- Spray a little starter fluid down the carbuerator. If it tries to fire, your timing and ignition is probably OK. This could indicate a carb or fuel pump problem.
2- If it doesn't fire, check out the points, condenser, coil, distributor cap and rotor. Look for condensation inside the cap. Check that the high tension wire from the coil to distributor is in good shape and not touching the engine or any brackets,etc.
3- Verify that your timing is correct. You may have a timing train problem (Worn or broken).
4- The distributor may have come loose and changed positions. Check for proper timing.
5- It may be a compression problem. If it has set long enough for the oil that coats the cylinder walls to drain down, you won't have enough compression to allow firing. Check your compression and if this seems to be the case, remove the spark plugs and squirt a little Marvel Mystery oil, or similar light weight oil into each cylinder. When it starts, it will smoke for a few minutes, but that will go away.
Hope this helps and if not, get back to me.
Have a super day!

The water has to be going somewhere most likely out the exhaust or inti the oil check both of those. Have your battery checked if ok alternator or wiring bad.
