You might use a little oil in each cylinder before you try to crank it. Give it a tune-up. Check all the fluids, engine--transmission--rear-end, whatever. Fresh fuel, change oil and filter, You may need to change all filters. The belt/s may need replacing. Make sure battery has a full charge.

I would check all fluids, first. .I'm sure I'm forgetting something? Hope all the seals didn't dry out.
