HELP with my problem to my Question and added details


A good hot battery shoulde do it. Have you had any problems with the security system? That's all that should keep it from starting now. Have you put a socket on the crank bolt to make sure the engine is not seized and turns freely?
Good luck.

87FordRanger 5spd 2.9l. Bad starter. Truck sat for month and a half with very little gas. Changed starter for rebuilt. Put in gas. Motor turned over, but no start. Tried a few more times. No start. Last...


Your starter solenoid stuck on. (This may be internal to the starter). You need to replace the solenoid (or starter), then get the battery charged, and try again. If this has a carburetor (rather than fuel injection), you may need to prime it with starter fluid or a little gas in the throat of the carb (put the air filter assembly back on before you try to start it, you don't want to start a fire).

1987 Ecoline van V-8 engine hasn't been started in about 7 years. It ran good before that. What do I have to do first to start it and get it running?


I would change all the fluids and either try dry gas or i would recommend that the gas tank be thoroughly drained and new gas put in the tank.If you have a hard time getting started try to use starter fluid in carburetor or if you have none just use gas. If the vehicle is equipped with fuel injectors locate air filter and follow air duct to engine that is where starter fluid or gasoline will have to be pored to prime the injectors.if it don't start the engine should be tuned up with a major tune up replace all filters ect even if it starts without tune up i would tune it up asap!

1996 5 speed honda accord. sat for a year. put in new battery. everything lights up, but car wont start. never had previous problem.


Are you saying the car turns over (cranks) but it does not start? Or, the car is Not turning over?
If it is cranking over but not starting, and it ran fine before sitting for the year, it may be water/moisture in the gas. Try some dry gas, and/or Carb-fuel injection cleaner in your gas tank.

1984 Rabit loses power while going up an incline


you need to check the accumulator and make sure you are getting the correct fuel line psi. Also if it sat a long time with old gas in it it could just be old gas accumulation and deposits. get a good fuel line and injector cleaner one that dosn't say STP and cost's more than $15. One that has to be done threw the fuel line or injector ram. You can try using seafoam, its seams to work pretty good in this type of situation just look it up on UTube.

good luck

Car not starting.. want say anything.. only light come on the dash


if the car has sat for 3 years then there is a LOT that you need to do before starting it.

!. The gas needs to be drained and fresh gas needs to be put in.
2. plugs need to be changed
3. Battery will probably need recharging or replacing
4. the oil needs to be drained and changed.

More than likely the issue is your battery but startig that car with out at least changing the oil and getting the old gas out will be VERY harmful to your engine.

1995 Oldsmobile Aurora won't start


if the car sat for two years and was never started.... the motor could very well be seized.... to get at the starter .... is usually done from the bottom. If you can removed the starter... test it to see if it's working.... something else you can try if you can see the starter ... is to tap it gently with a hammer while someone attempts to start it...
