Q: Vehicle has sat for two years

asked by on

My car has not been started in two years. What do I need to do to get it started?

I recommend having a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, inspect your SL550 to identify and quote the repairs needed. You may need to replace the fuel and fuel filter, have the battery and cables checked or replaced, and a run a thorough inspection of the tires and brakes.
