1995 MITSUBISHI ECLIPSE- 2.0 NON-TURBO 100,000 miles plus
The car has been sitting for about a year and a half. I charged the battery and tried to start it. The starter would crank but the engine turned very slowly. I was getting no spark to the plugs. I ended up burning out the starter so I replaced it. I recharged the battery and tried to start the car again and now the starter doesn't crank at all. I've checked all the fuses and fusible links. I have a good connection at both the battery and the starter. I checked the continuity between the battery cables and the starter and they check good. Someone told me the engine may be partially seized and to squirt a little oil into each cylinder to free it up. I've never heard of that. I don't know what my next move is. Please help. Thanks alot!
