Pretty good chance that most cars will run the battery down with no use over 6 months.
Put a battery charger on it first - and leave it on for a good amount of time.

165000 miles auto non turbo sitting 6 months plus starts fine, rough idle 1100 rpm sounds and feels like not firing on all six. does this car kill plugs easy?

It's been sitting for six months, plugs probably have corrosion or rust on them. That and your fuel is probably turned to soup. Put in new plugs and a really heavy duty fuel system cleaner. You might consider changing all filters too - especially fuel filter.

1997 chevy blazer s10 cranks but wont start

You have a new battery and it cranks. Turning over is cranking. You are saying it won't start after sitting for six months? What is an old mechanic? Was the cable installed at home during the one year layoff? It sounds as though you failed to hold the old mechanic responsible for installing the correct cable or adjusting the one you have ,so it will start. You have a safety switch issue by the sound of it. Make sure you have the right cable and then find out how to install and if applicable,adjust properly

My ss wont start. It has been sitting for six

you need to determine if you have spark at plugs or how much fuel pressure your pump is putting will need at least 55 psi of fuel to fire.

Engine want turnover

Im not that sure but you can try checking on the thermostat located at the end of the radiator hose entering the engine. If this gets stuck in the close position it can easily cause this problem. You can just have a mechanic remove it, you don't have to replace it. The thermostat helps in heating your car during start ups especially in winter, othewise you can do without it. MGA
