refill the battery with electrolyt and charge it fully, then try to start the vehicle
If it cranks/turns over no faster have the starter motor checked.
Ensure that the timing belt is intact before you do anything, and that it is in the correct position.
Ensure that the oil is clear of water and is clean and is topped up to the top mark on the dipstick
Assuming you have checked the above and the belt and oil/coolant is all as they should be, and you have a fully charged battery and the starter is ok .......attempt to start the vehicle. Turn it over/ crank it over a few times if it does not start immediately.
Should it not start perform a compression check to find out the
engine's state of health.
Then come back with the results and we can go feom there.
Add the detail of your work and the make and model of the vehicle, along with the engine option, and repost the query
Yes it can be. Here is a simple way to check for a intake leak. Get a can of crab cleaner. Start the motor, let the motor idle if it will. Spray the crab cleaner around the intake where it bolts.to the cyl heads. If the intake is leaking you will hear the motor idle change. You can check vac lines the same way. Hope this helps you find the problem.
CRC makes a product available at your local store call "Fast Motor Flush". Just follow the instructions and the product will clean your engine fairly well. Really old and dirty engines may need 2 times.
As far as oiling the fan motor shaft use a light weight lubricating oil like sewing machine oil. Just a drop or two will do. Olive oil is great for cooking, but to heavy a viscosity to be used for a lubricant. The switch should be in the "O" position.
you will need to remove and clean but as a last try use a good deggreaser to wash off , try and use WD40, the use light oil-SAE40 to the fan spindle points and check out.
It will improve a lot but repeat the process a few times ,then switch on and repeat.

Usually if the motor is squealing, the bearings are dry no lubrication and worn. If you have oil ports you can oil it and quiet it down for a while. Most motors now have self lubricated or oil impregnated bearings, which you can't lubricate. It costs as much for somebody to replace the bearings, as it does for a new motor. Most people replace the motor.
