Q: Engine not turning over

asked by on

The car had been out of service for year when my daughter drove it. The car stopped operating. It's been been in the garage for a year since then. The battery may need charging, but the car never made a noise after it stopped. The engine isn't turning over.

A year is a very long time to have a vehicle sitting. At least once a week the engine must be started and ran, and the vehicle driven until the systems are warmed up. The engine oil must be changed before driving as conventional oil permits 3 months or 3,000 miles of lubrication protection. If you need further assistance, I recommend you have a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic, inspect the no-start issue and suggest an appropriate repair.
