    Hello,

    Looking for some help getting a wagon started. It was sitting for a few
    months.
    The car is turning over but doesn't start.
    I have checked the fuel pump, relay, and overpressure switch and
    everything seems fine.
    I pulled one plug and I was seeing a spark when the car was turning
    over.
    Should I pull all the plugs and check them?
    Any other ideas? Am I missing something?

    Thanks

  2. I'd start with the 50/50 question: is it ignition or fuel that's stopping
    you? Try a spray of starter fluid in the air cleaner (I usually spray the
    filter a couple seconds and close the box back up). If it goes "vroom" all
    you need is fuel. Otherwise, look for ignition problems, including the
    timing having jumped.
