Hi.
the varnish smell you describe is classic for stale petrol.

change that first, as long as there is a spark and good petrol, the engine should run.

run the car gently up to normal running temperature, then shut off and restart when cool.
there will be a few things sticking slightly, but they will probably free off when the engine warms up and the oil circulates properly

My 2001 Lincoln Continental has been sitting for over two years, It did start for about a minute but it wont start again. what can I do


BATTERY DEAD MORE LIKELY.CAR BEEN SITTING FOR 2 YEARS GAS IN FUEL TANK WEAK FULL OF WATER, YOU NEED TO REMOVE DRAIN OUT OLD FUEL IN THE FUEL TANK. YOU NEED ADD NEW FUEL IN FUEL TANK,CHANGE FUEL FILTER, IF CAR BEEN SITTING FOR TWO YEARS.I WOULD REMOVE SPARK PLUGS ONE AT A TIME REMOVE EACH SPARK PLUG SQUIRT FEW DROPS OF OIL INTO CYLINDER THEN REINSTALL SPARK PLUG, REASON I SAY TO DO THIS PROCEDURE IT HELP PISTON RINGS SEAL UP ENOUGH TO BUILD UP COMPRESSION SO YOU CAN START THE ENGINE WHERE IT BEEN SITTING TOO LONG.YOU NEED CHANGE ANTIFREEZE AND THERMOSTAT.REPLACE RADIATOR HOSES TO BE ON THE SAFE SIDE,REPLACE AIR FILTER.

I have a 1990 Cadillac Deville that has been sitting for approximately a year. I have put a new battery, new plugs, and it has fuel and is getting fuel pressure. It will not start, it turns over but will...


If it was running fine prior to sitting, then the timing is probably OK. If it was sitting because of a blown head gasket then that's another story.
Did you check the pressure with a guage or just by probing the test port and watching fuel come out?
Make sure you are getting spark (probe the plug wire as close to the plug as possible with a test light or remove the plug from the engine, put back in wire and watch the plug for spark). If good move on to the coil, etc. Check the ignition relay.
Check the compression

I would first begin with a good tune up with new plugs wires cap, rotor, check coil. injector can be clog also, try to add bottle of fuel injectors cleaner and add 93 octane of gas fill it half way and run it til empty and see that will also help. If you have high miles like over 100k have timing check, its good idea to change timing belt every 75-10k miles, if it jump time due to worn belt, the car will not run properly.

Car wont start


If it has been sitting for 3 years it could be a number of things. First thing to try is a good tune up (plugs, wires, oil change, air filter, and fuel filter). If the plugs have fouled out they are not getting enough spark to burn the fuel. Also if the fuel itself has turned, you should try to drain the tank, this is not feasible at times and can be substituted by adding as much fresh gas as possible and a can of Octane boost/ Gas drier. SeaFoam is what I would recommend (found at your local autoparts store. If you have over half a tank of gas that has been sitting that long, you will need to find a way to drain what is in it. There are a few tricks to doing this without dropping the gas tank or sucking it out with a garden hose. Try the tune up first though.

HELLO; I HATE TO SAY ,BUT I HAVE TO BE HONEST A CAR SITTING FOR 7 MO. IS ALMOST AS A HOUSE NOT BEING LIVED IN! THE ELEMENT'S AND NOT KEEPING THE MOVING PARTS MOVING IS BAD, SO LET ME GIVE U SOME THING U CAN DO AND SOME THINGS U MUST REPLACE AND SERVICE! FIRST IS THEIR ANY GAS IN THE TANK IF SO IF ITS UNDER A QUARTER TANK ADD AT LEAST 10 GALLON'S, OVER A QUARTER TRY TO SIPHON IT OUT TO A QUARTER AND DO AS ABOVE! NEXT CHANGE THE OIL AND FILTER, CHECK ALL THE FAN BELTS FOR CRACKS AND JUST THEIR OVERALL CONDITION. REMOVE THE LOWER RADIATOR HOSE, AFTER U DRAIN THE RADIATOR AND THEN REMOVE THE TOP HOSE AND TAKE A HOSE AND FIRST RUN WATER INTO THE LOWER HOSE INLET AT THE BOTTOM OF THE RADIATOR REAL WELL AND THEN THE SAME FOR THE TOP, FLUSH IT GOOD,RECONNECT HOSES FILL WITH 50/50 ANTIFREEZE&WATER, THROUGH AWAY THE BATTERY, INSTALL A NEW ONE. IF U CAN BEFORE U START THE ENGINE DISCONNECT THE COIL WIRE AND MOVE IT ASIDE,U SEE THE MOST WARE HAPPENS TO AN ENGINE EACH TIME ITS STARTED SO WHAT IM SUGGESTING IS TO TURN THE ENGINE OVER,JUST BY TURNING THE KEY AND DISABLE IT FROMSTARTING RIGHT AWAY, WE NEED TO GET AS MUCH OIL UP INTO THE TOP OF THE ENGINE AS POSIABLE,BECAUSE AFTER 7 MO THEIR IS NONE UP THEIR, THESE THINGS SHOULD REALY BE CONSIDERED BE FOR U START YOUR ENGINE, THE ALTINATOR AND FULE PUMP IN THE GAS TANK ARE A **** SHOOT, ONCE U GET IT RUNNING PUT A 93 OR BETTER OCTANE GAS IN IT, WITH A GOOD INJECTOR CLEANER. HOPE WE HELPED AND GOOD LUCK TO U..
