MY CAR SITS OUTSIDE AND HAVEN'T STARTED IT IN YEARS

Put 60,000 miles on the new engine and then parked the car outside and let it set. I was hoping I could put $2000 into it and have a servicable, dependable car. My friends tell me to junk it? Your advice? Thanks

Do you
have the same problem?
Yes

They are a great reliable car, but you'd be best to have a qualified mechanic give it a complete look over then get their advice as whether to put any money into it.
