Does it have fresh gas in it? Depending on where you live the gas could have evaporated leaving behind varnish. Varnish is a thick gooey mess that will foul up the whole fuel system. I always tell people to fill the tank with premium, add a fuel stabilizer, drive to the storage place and park it. Then disconnect the negative (-) battery cable. In that order. Before storing a vehicle. You may also have water condensation in the gas tank. Try squirting some starting fluid down the throttle body. It should run a few seconds on the starting fluid. If not, it's an ignition (no spark) problem. HTH. -Jim
