2004 Isuzu Ascender LS 6 Cyl 4.20L


Getting car up and running after sitting 3 yrs.

Ascender has been in driveway 3 yrs never driven. Won't start- suspect battery replacement 1st step. What should I do to start it? 1) put a few gallons in tank? 2) pour in gum out? 3) Do I need to spray anything in the filter/ starter area before attempting to turn engine?
Bottom line- trying to drive to shop to replace all hoses and etc. thanks

I would say non of what you referred to

You have to test the battery

Doubt it is any good if a charge has not been
maintained every couple weeks

Could end up removing the fuel tank & clean it

Why would you pay a shop to change hoses

On a 2004 vehicle that has sat that long you do
your own work or flat bed it to a shop
