did you run the engine periodically? rec. when letting her sit for extended periods of time, run till fully warmed at least once a month.
review when last tuned. if sitting cold for months is a good idea. also rec. oil stabilizer treatment with oil change. recondition seals and cylinders.
rec. fuel system clean. ethanol treatment to 1 tank of premium fuel. ethanol blend in fuel causes build up in fuel system, combustion chambers, exhaust system and causes increased wear to spark plugs. leaves res. build up when sitting idle for extended periods of time. result may take drive time.
these are things u can do ur self. rec. bring it in to a shop for diagnostic run to find any other issues u should be aware of.
