I have a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 19k that has been sitting for 6-7 years , what needs to be done to get it running again?

My Throttle Body sensor, and traction lights just came on after getting thermostat changed. Is there a procedure that I have to do

Quick question. I have a slow coolant leak. I've only noticed the leak after I turn off the car, not while it's running. Any ideas
A hose is a possibility. The leak point(s) can be pinpointed by pressurizing the cooling system to about 15 PSI when the engine is completely cold. A visual check during that test will reveal the problem area(s). The water pump...
