why was it parked? Did the previous owner say? I'd start with him.

He said that he never had time to drive it or work on it

Hmmmm. Well, start with the basics. Are you getting spark? Fuel? Is it even turning over?

Yeah it turns on but it turns right off when you dont give it gas

So it runs but will NOT idle?

If you are this confused, you might not be able to fix this yourself- my guess, with cars that have been sitting- is that the gas has gone bad, the fuel tank is corroded, and bad juju is filling your gas lines, injectors, fuel pump, filter, etc. HEY! how's that for guessin'?!
