Question about Air Tools & Compressors
My 2000 celica gts has been sitting over a year. It got towed by crooked cops in kahoots with a tow company who tried to take ownwrship and i luckily got it back but it wouldnt start from the day it came back and has been in my driveway ever since. Never had issues prior and had a full workup at toyota a month prior to it being towed. Now that I have my license back...I need it to start....I had a coroded batt terminal so that's been replaced and got a new batt, fully charged. My bf did change a relay fuse that a mechanic told him was bad but that didnt fix it not starting. With the new batt and terminal now it turns over like its gonna start (which it didnt do before) right up but it just wont fire. I have full power everywhere except the stereo/radio? Which has always worked prior. My stepdads diagnostic computer found no errors. I also put new gas (it has 3/4 full tank)and some dry gas in......any ideas on why it wont start??
First from sitting so long varnish has built up in the fuel line. Check the fuel filter first by disconnecting it towards the front facing the engine. Turn the ignition to the ON position and listen for the fuel pump running. It should run for 5 seconds when you do this to prime the injectors. If fuel spews out go to the next inspection. The injectors are more than likely plugged up. Auto Zone sells a NOID which is a tester for fuel injectors which are inexpensive. Purchase one and check your injectors. If working electrical wise you should smell gas through the air cleaner.If fuel is present which will have a strong odor check the ignition module and coils next. If no codes were present before it was towed and stored away there will be no codes as of now until you get it running

Check out the sir filter and the carburetta.
Give the plugs a good clean (or fit new ones).
If it still doesn't start then give it a tow.
Vehicles that have been stationary for a long time will sometimes start if they are towed (while in gear-2nd or higher).
It may take some time but is worth a try.
