Change the gas. That gas is no good after a year of sitting,probably has water in it. Hopefully it didn't laquer the fuel pump pick-up screen.

Try starting fluid. Gas is probably bad and needs to be drained. The engine will fire or run briefly with starting fluid verifying a fuel problem.

My car has been sitting for 2 years and won't start. The engine turns over but it sounds like not getting gas. I read somewhere to spray gas starting inside air intake valve. Where is the air intake v


Safer is to use 'carburetor cleaner' which is also flammable but a little less dangerous than using gasoline.After sitting a long time, our modern gasoline gets tired; never allow something to sit so long without adding some 'fuel stabilizer.'If possible with your car, I would drain (siphon) the tired gas out and replace it with a few gallons of fresh.
Really tough starting problems can also be overcome with 'starting fluid' which is pure ether and very flammable.Any of these may require the removal of the engine air filter so the liquid gets into the intake manifold.
Stale gasoline can also gum up the fuel injectors which may have to be removed for service if none of the fluids causes the engine to fire.

Wont start


turn the ignition to the ON position and check to see if you can hear the fuel pump making a buzzing sound. if it doesnt make a buzzing sound, the the fuel pump isnt working. if the fuel pump sint working, then check the fuse in the fuse box under the hood.
