Start by making sure it will crank ,check battery,remove all old fuel,pull the plugs and put marvel mystery oil in the cylinders,before you put plugs back in spin the motor over with plugs out and blow the oil out of the cylinders,yes it will make a mess, then put good fuel in and give it a shot

88 Chevy C3500 7.4L truck has been sitting for 2 years~connected and jumped battery and put gas~drove down the road fine until turned on the lights~truck acted like it wanted to turn off~boyfriend thinks...


I suspect that the battery is dead and when you turned on the lights there is insufficient current from the alternator to run everything so the ignition shut down. Have a load test done on the battery and check for bad cells as a battery sitting unused for 2 years will be sulphated up on the plates.. Fit new battery and reset the CPU with a code reader.

Hi Cherles, I'm glad to help!

I'm not there to diagnose it properly but here's a couple thing you can try! (1) When a vehicle sits for a long period of time the gas can go bad. I would make sure the gas is not full of moisture from sitting so long. (2) OH the old years when they had points. I would take the point out and see if they are burnt if they are replace them. Start here and see if this helps. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Cherles.

Truck won't start, when ignition turned console lights up but everything else is silent


Sounds like the neutral safety switch may be faulty. try putting the shifter in neutral, then attempt to start it again. If this doesn't work, try holding the key in the position as you would to start the engine while moving the gear shifter back nad forth perhaps youl'll then hear , at some point, the starter engage...
