The story behind the car is long and is detailed here.
I parked the car many years ago. Frustrated with constant maintenance I couldnt keep up with, I financed a new vehicle. With a running engine but many failing sub systems I left it under a tree and neglected it for at least 5 years.
I built the engine myself and have a long intimate history with the car.
Totaling my mdx left me with no transportation save my 10 speed. Ive been pedaling everywhere since june. I decided nothing could be so far gone I cant revive it.
Gas tank was empty. What should I do before I try to start it? Will rust be an issue?
