Do an oil change. When your ready to start it up crank it a few times before turning it over to assure the oil pressure is in the cam.
Naturally a new battery (thats the correct one.)
Clean cables.(including the wires off the starter and the starter interrupt relay)
Put a bottle of Injector cleaner in tank.
Replace coolant ,hoses and thermostat.
Bleed brake lines and replenish fluid then check calipers for leaks.
Replenish and blled out power steering fluid.
Change all ATF and Differential fluids whether
automatic or stick.
Inflate tires and be prepared for a rough ride until steel belt returns to normal.
After you got it to go, gonna take a while for radio to be normal again.
A/c problems are usually on the block of the high side pressure hoses.(You will see the oil film on the lines thats were the leak is.) This is all fun stuff any problems keep me posted I got an 81 thats all show I know what your going threw.

My 1990 corvette was running then I took it to a mechanic for a tune up and oil change he Put it on the hoist and now my corvette does not start no more.

Does the vehicle crank and not start? Your mechanic must re check his work then inspect battery, spark, fuel pressure 30psi min,and computer codes. Good luck and always have your mechanic test drive vehicle to confirm repair.
