Does it make a click noise when you try?
If you have the headlights on and try to start do the lights dim?
If you put a wrench on the crank pulley bolt will it turn the engine

If it is siezed up with rust, some pepsi poured into cylinders through
spark plug holes and left to sit over nite will do wonders sometimes.
The phosphuric acid in it eats rust real good. You can use diet Pepsi
too to avoid sugar stickness to flush out.

Bad, I almost snorted my cola on the keyboard reading that! I think
you should have recommended CLR (or similar products) but Pepsi? I've
tried it on rust, does nothing but get it wet. I don't recommend any

anyway, can't hurt, right? <g>
I once had an engine that was rusted solid (blown head gasket that was
not fixed). Pulled the heads, and beat the pistons down with a block
of wood and a ball-peen hammer (2 lb). Cleaned the bores up, put a bit
of oil in each cylinder and put it back together. Started and ran
fine, didn't use any more oil than before. But... That was a *long*
time ago, when I was a kid with no money, and way too much time...

control experiment with tap water did cause damage... <g>
If you are serious about killing rust, there are some very good
commercial solutions, some of which 'plate' the metal so it won't rust
afterwards. These really do work, I've used them several times on
small vehicle parts.

If I'm not mistaken, you want to fill the cylinders with Marvel's
Mystery Oil and let it sit for a few days. It should penetrate if

Yes, it is relatively toxic. Had to sign for it at the counter. but
one ounce will go a long way -
Ever check the MDS sheets on any effective penetrating oils??
All nasty. Seems if it's not capable of making you sick you may as
well just whizz on it.
