Car has sat for a year or so. Worked fine when it was put up. Trying to get it operational again. Now it needs a new battery but, connected to jumper cables, the engine will turn over fine but won't start. When it does start, it runs for about a second, purring along just fine, then quits. Tried putting a few drops of gas directly into the intake but no go.

does this transmission use vacuum pressure to "decide" shift points? Also seems to shift a little better when outside temperature is warmer.

I put new cavalier ignition switch in now car won't start theft system warning indicator light stays on disabling fuel

Both gauges were working prior to brakes being worked on. Exhaust pipe was looked at as it needs to be replaced due to rust. Break line also leaked out all fluid causing a 3 car accident. Brake pedal still had to be pushed to floor after repair..but car did have brakes and Knew we had a leak in the line, but was told it was space to drive as long as we checked the fluid every 2 days until he could replace the following week. Brake line now has about 2 inches visible hanging down and freely dripping fluid at what looks to be a possible coupling in the line that was busted during the wreck. Really curious if the brake repair could have caused the gauges and lights to go out..knew speedometer n gas gauge were not working but not the brake light until it failed to come on prior to the accident.
