Uh, what exactly are you trying to do (besides start it)?



Has the car been sitting for a while or something? Is it flooded? Need a little more background before someone will tell you to dump half a quart in, pull the EGI fuse, and grab your nuts.



Seriously, though, give us a little more to work with and it shouldn't be too hard.

Oh, okay. Deflooding is easy enough. Just pull the EGI fuse, crank it over for about a bit (15-30 seconds), replace the fuse, and start 'er up.



Hopefully it's as simple as that for ya. Report back either way

a capful in each rotor housing does the trick.



next time, put mmo in the engine when you park it and go out there every now and then to turn her over a few times (redistribute the mmo around the rotor housing and move the seals around a bit).

Try again, sometimes you need to do it a couple of times. Pull the EGI, turn motor with throttle *fully depressed* in three 10 second tries (so you dont overheat the starter). Make sure the battery is fully charged before you try to start again, if it doesnt start like usual, dont keep trying. You may need to remove the plugs and unflood that way.
