Car wont start

My car has been sitting on the street for around 5 months now without being started.. When I tried to start it, the battery was dead and wouldnt hold a charge. I replaced the battery with a brand new, right off the shelf batter, and the lights and everything like that comes on, and it cranks, but wont turn over.

I've tried using starting fluid on it, and it seems like its going to come close to starting, but then doesnt. I've gotten it to that point several times and tried pushing the accelorator when it doese it, and it just makes a grinding type of noise. Sort of like when its already started and you accidently turn the key again. Except it wont actually start.

The oil level is within normal range, and its got a quarter tank of gas, according to the guage.

the starter is maybe a year old or so.


The actual car itself is a 94 Aerostar Van
