Car sat for a year, started up and ran fine prior to parking it. Charged the battery, it turned over but wouldn't start. Tried starting fluid, tried to start but didn't. Replaced battery, still wouldn't start.

Hello,

If the vehicle turns over but doesn't start, I would check that it has spark to begin with. Here is a guide on how to check for spark. Just try to keep your hands clear of any sparkplug wires or the ignition coil.

Also, we are going to have to check fuel pressure to find out if this is a fuel issue. Here is a guide that will help with this:

Lastly here is a guide that provides a little more general info on this issue that will give more detail and next steps.
