    How to start a car. Don't just start a car that hasn't run in a while. In this video I show you what to check before you attempt to start a car that has not run for 6 months or more so you don't damage the engine.

@chrisfix I have a Ford Taurus 2003 v6 dohc. It’s been sitting in my garage for about two years. After watching this video it motivated me to get it running again. I started doing everything you did in the video. But when I got to the spark plugs, everything around it was dirty with oil that leaked out. I thought about taking it all apart but I was hoping maybe you had some better suggestions. Thanks!

Just curious to why the bell you are pumping the gas on a fuel injection? It's not helping buddy, and it's best to start a engine even if it's been setting for year or just been rebuilt without coolant, it's best for them to get hot that way the rings will set, not over heating hot just run it to about 200 degree and shut it down that way the rings can set, and also any mechanic that builds cars everyday would not use all these gadgets to test coolant and oil, if something was in the oil trust me you would see it on the dip stick

Thanks for sharing. Pumping the gas is something to try when nothing else works. Maybe there isn’t air getting to the engine for whatever reason and pumping the gas gets that extra air. Who knows but it’s worth a shot since it doesn’t take any effort.

At 1:27 "...a dry lock lube". No, any locksmith will tell you, don't put that graphite garbage inside a lock mechanism...it's like pouring a fine grit sand into it, it will grind up the guts every time you use it. Better would be a WD40, the liquid stuff has about an 85% solvent with a 15% grease suspended in the solvent...the combo cleans out the insides, the solvent evaporates leaving a fine grease coating everywhere.

The reason the key won't come out easily is because older fords have a key release right next to the ignition, not because there's a problem with the key

Oh and for my dad, Starter fluid is a must for an old car. also a new alternator coil is my uncle's go-to to put some spring in the spark... so also then on into every other system in depth but that's the basics of getting it running to me, plus all that i mentioned i do.

I want to go buy a 2003 mustang gt thats been sitting for two years. Apparently the fuel pump is bad so I was just going to spray starter fluid but now I don't want to try to start it without lubricating the cylinders and I dont want to go and take 8 plugs out and go through all that work just to see if it runs before buying because its not my car. What should i do?
