2003 Chevy Cavalier starting problems?

Asked by Victoriaann2020 Apr 23, 2020 at 01:57 AM about the 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It's been sitting for about 4 months
with no gas. I put a new battery, gas
cap, and gas of course. It tries to
start, but acts like it's not getting gas.
Any suggestions

The car's condition in the photo doesn't give me a lot of hope for this car. When a car sits unrun for that long, this can cause a lot of things to deteriorate; mainly electrical. Who knows where the problem is? I can tell you that in great shape, the car's probably worth a grand, and it will cost more than this to diagnose & repair the car. It's a losing battle and you probably would be better off calling a salvage yard to tow it away.
