    try spraying some starting fluid in the carb,crank it, if it starts then stalls, chances are a fuel problem, if nothing happens, then its probly a spark problem.good luck.
    all great answers here... it been a month since this post hopefully you got it running by now
    also, check for spark, or do a tune-up
    Probably has something to do with the fuel since the car sat for a while. Gas and Diesel both have a tendancey to go bad if left to sit for long periods of time. I would check and see in the engine is getting fuel.
    is there a reset button on a 2001 mitisbushy elips gt
