You have a mess on your hands .If you ever want to store any kind of gas engine you need to put fuel stabelazer in the gas and run it for for some time at high speed conduitions as well as low speed before you walk away from it .
The best advice I can give is remove the air cleaner get it all off the top of the engine.Take some HI test gas poor an ounce or 2 the engine see if you can get it running and keep it running for 30 sec if you can get that out of it .It WILL WORK .
Then do a complete tune up all wires cap rotor pcv plugs check belts the hoses belt tenisioners radiator antifreeze engine oil transmission oil keep pouring gas down the bearral then start with the carb cleaner and injector cleaner if it runs for any extended time.Your not supposed to do things like this to engines if you expect them to run.

Pull the throttle body and clean it thoroughly, replace the injectors.

Try some Sta-bil in the tank with fresh gas, it is made for dissolving the gel that results old gas. You can buy this at any Auto parts store. I would try this fist as I have had excellent results from this product. It will dissolve the gel.

All the fuel in the EFI parts will be gummed up.
the injectors have 10 micron size screens inside.
they will be clogged.
we start at the tank and work forward, cleaning ALL that.
a new fuel filter will be needed.
next time drain all fuel out. first. save a bundle.
E10 fuel makes this worse) usa has Ethanol in it. bad .

at the worst remove all injectors and have them pro cleaned
using ultra sound, they back flush them to clean them.

First things you need are a digital multi-meter and a chilton or haynes manual (together, both are far cheaper than the first incorrect diagnosis you may make)
Second, you will need time to first study the manual and run diagnostic tests on each component.
Every engine needs fuel air and spark in order to start and run Air is pretty much a "given" unless there is a big fat woodchuck stuck in the air filter box. Air flow is regulated by the throttle body which simply opens and closes when you press down on the gas pedal.
(which should really be called the air pedal)
The computer sensors see the internal conditions: TPS "watches" how far you have depressed the pedal. Computer sees that info and changes fuel delivery ans timing according to info from there after comparing info from other sensors, MAP measures the difference in external (ambient) air pressure and compares it with manifold vacuum.Map sensor info translates to proper shift points, engine timing changes and fuel delivery etc. Manifold air temp, measures exactly that.
Coolant temp sensor monitors the engine temp by measuring coolant temp Crank position sensor sends a signal telling the computer exactly where (what position the crankshaft is in) And cam position sensor tells the computer what the position of the camshaft is.Usually an engine will run with a bad sensor except for the tps, cam sensor, and sometimes map sensor. Your asd relay needs a signal from the crank sensor (through the computer) or it will not permit fuel to reach the injectors and will also prevent spark. The cam sensor does much the same thing. Crank Position sensors have a relatively high failure rate so I'd look at that first.
O2 sensor(s) measure the amount of O2 present in the exhaust and send that info to the computer which alters fuel delivery to attempt to keep exhaust "in range" of pre-set parameters.
The IAC (Idle air control) is not a sensor. It responds to what the computer tells it to do in regards to keeping the air in "balance" with fuel flow at idle.
Carburetors remained relatively clean because the fuel and air was mixed there and sent down to the combustion chambers. With injection, only air goes through the throttle body and that leads to "crud" deposits that can obstruct the valve or keep the plunger off the seat and alter the air/fuel mixture. Passageways need to be cleaned and the plunger end as well...but, never turn the plunger while doing that.
The computer takes all the information and uses it to maintain proper spark control and fuel delivery for every load condition.
The computer needs a good connection to all sensors, a good power supply and good ground.
Always check those things before testing. A bad connection in the ignition switch can cause a low or no current condition at the computer. Your engine has two main grounds (battery to block and block to firewall) but also has several smaller ground connections on the fenders and block, all of which need to be clean and secure. Always test with a known good fully charged battery or no test info is valid. All fuses need to be tested before running any other tests.

Bottom line: A shop needs to do the same testing I mentioned that is in the manual. A shop also has a hand held or larger scanner that helps them run tests faster.
Find out whats missing (spark or fuel) and work first on items that make that happen.
Most common failure is the CPS. Fuel pump is second in line, but if you hear it running likely it's good (but make sure the fuel is reaching the injectors...a dirty fuel filter can prevent that)
Guessing gets expensive and the manual will come in handy for many repairs later (never a bad thing to have)
If you have any questions along the way just ask and I or someone else will give you an answer.
Most times running a full diagnostics can be both annoying and frustrating. Keep away from sledge hammers the urge to use them may overcome you but if you stay with it, you can find your problem.

The gasoline has probably turned into varnish. You will have to drain out all or most of the old gas.

Since it is an older vehicle, check under the dash for any "rigging" that might have been done over the years. Start at the battery and follow all electrical wires that lead into the dashboard and fuse panels and check for any frayed or split lines that might be causing you to have a short circuit somewhere. that's what it sounds like to me. Unless you have a huge sound system with some 15" woofers in the trunk you shouldn't be experiencing any power shortages.

Has not been started in 3 years.i replaced the battery but engine will not fire.


Hello bukskin007
I would say that 3 year old untreated gas combined with cold weather may be the problem. But you
can check for spark by removing a plug wire insert an old spark plug into the wire and ground the plug,have someone crank it over you should see spark to the electrode. And you could check for
fuel to the injectors by depressing the pin on the schrader type valve(tire valve) on the fuel rail after
cranking it over for a couple of seconds. But I would start with some fresh gas and maybe a fuel
filter. Hope this is helpful.

Doesn't want to start at first


Before you crank try and cut key on for 5-10 seconds then off and back on then crank if cranks up then you have a fuel problem. this will allow pump to run and pump fuel up. could be a bad check valve in pump causing fuel to drain back

Automatic choke stopped working- difficulty start- revs dropping low at stop


Quick and easy attempt to fix might be to try some fuel injector cleaner,the purple bottle stuff I put in, is only about $3 a bottle, and seems to eliminate similiar symptoms brought on by bad gas.
