Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I had to put my car in a covered garage due to predatory sf meter maid ticketing. It is now
time to relocate and I want to bring my car which i love dearly along with me. What
exactly do I need to do to start the engine. I know i'll need a new battery and ultimately
bring it to the garage to have the fluids and filters all replace, but not sure how to get the
engine going to get it there. thank you very much for your help in advance.

How long was it sitting? You might want to have it towed to the garage.

You could always have it towed to the shop that will be doing all the work. Thats what I would do.

You dont really want to run the old gas through the motor.
