I have a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee that has been sitting for 6-7 years with a full tank of gas. What needs to be done to get it running again?

My car has 19000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

You will need to start by draining all the fuel and put in new fuel and then see if it starts or the pump and filter assembly may be bad.
