Hello all I was wondering if you can help me out. My 2003 Mitsubishi Galant was parked in my garage for 7 months.  My wife started the vehicle one time during that period.  The vehicle starts up however it will not turn over and remain running.  The radio and all the lights work.

Drain all gas, open pressure test valve on fuel rail, purge all gas, put in new gas.

It will turn over but not start or stay running? Turns over good with starter but won't crank and stay running? If so I would start by removing all the old gas and add some new fresh gas. Condensation has probably built up in the bottom of the tank and that's probably what's giving you trouble.

Is couple of reasons that may cause that, 1-check the battery-charge it full and then try again , maybe doesn't have enough power to start the engine. 2 spray some carburator cleaner in the air instake valve and put some gas treatment in the fluel tank, it may have moist or dirt. 3 check or change yours sparks plugs. If still not working bring iy to the mechanic
