1987 Nissan Stanza won’t start after sitting 5 years

I have a 1987 Nissan stanza that’s been sitting to five years. I put new fuel in the tank. the engine will crank but will not start. when I added starting fluid it would turn over but won’t stay running.

That’s great that you added fresh fuel

However . . . did you also remove the tank and drain the junk in there

It’s quite possible that the remaining old fuel has already ruined the pump

Are you even getting spark?

Compression good?
