If you are not sure, try draining your fuel tank and make sure its empty.

For bikes, unleaded or premium gas works just fine.

Try also to change oil.

Ran out of gas


Probably 2 year old gas in other tank. switch back to the good tank and run injector cleaner for at least 2 tanks of gas.

88 Chevy C3500 7.4L truck has been sitting for 2 years~connected and jumped battery and put gas~drove down the road fine until turned on the lights~truck acted like it wanted to turn off~boyfriend thinks...


I suspect that the battery is dead and when you turned on the lights there is insufficient current from the alternator to run everything so the ignition shut down. Have a load test done on the battery and check for bad cells as a battery sitting unused for 2 years will be sulphated up on the plates.. Fit new battery and reset the CPU with a code reader.

Pressure washer has been sitting up for about 2 years.. worked perfectly before I parked it.. lol.. But, I put a new spark plug on, cleaned the filter, sprayed carb cleaner in it drained the gas tank and...


Did you use Gas additive when you parked it 2 years ago? Sounds like the Carburetor is gummed up. With the gov't mandate of 10% gas your carbureted engines are very unhappy. Ethanol absorbs moisture and in no time at all you have a carburetor that is sitting with water in the Bowl. Take the Bowl off the carburetor take down and clean the jets. Sometimes the Needle valve Seat, If made of rubber will melt and let only a tiny bit of gas in to fill the bowl. After a time the engine burns more gas then the seat will allow in and the engine will stall. Ethanol gas: Worse gas mileage, bad for carburetors and more expensive.. Thanks Gov't.

I have a 1989 cadillac deville 2 door front wheel drive i just changed the fuel filter in it and i pour fuel injection cleaner in the gas tank. when i pour gas in the carberator it gives a little start to...


absolutely. if you pour gas in the carb, and it runs, then dies, you have a fuel delivery issue. if u put a new fuel filter on , and then let it sit for a year, it can still be a problem. fuel gums up and clogs up stuff, so it could be the jets on the carb are clogged, the fuel bowl is clogged with gummy fuel, the fuel lines could have a clog, or it could be a bad fuel pump. but if your like me and you forget to drain fuel and then dont drive the car for a year, you have something clogged up with bad gas and it needs to be cleaned / rebuilt.

Car has been sitting up for two year. Bought new


put good gas in it, high octane to compensate for the old gas in it, and if it still doesnt start make sure its getting gas, if so look to plugs, wires and rotor and cap, gas generally goes bad after about 6 months with no stabilizers in it

Hello,I have 1994 ford taurus that turns over but won't start.It has been sitting for a year. Also when I turn on the key a computer box under the hood,mounted just above the radiator buzzes. Please give...


They're shouldnt be any computers near the radiator. Your coputer would be mounted inside the car or on then fender/firwall (away from heat). Make sure the battery is fully charged and that the distributar cap/rotor are not corroded. Also make sure the gas hasn't gone bad (get water in it after sitting). Put some water remover in the tank and try to ad fresh gas if your not able to drain the tank. You could also have bad/clogged injectors after sitting but highly doubtful if it ran fine a year ago. Check the easy things I mentioned first. Spray som starting fluid in the throttle body while holding the throttle wide open when starting (need 2 people for this) see if it tries to fire, if it does try you are not getting gas or not good gas. Out the water remover in first and as much new/fresh gas as possible.

89 Ford F150 shuts off when put in gear.


After sitting 2 years, there must have been some fuel in tank that has probably gone real bad (like shellac) and contaminated the fuel system, plugged up filter etc. Usually rust will form in tank, mixed with stale fuel, it will turn just like mud.
