Got a 92 taurus I want to take off somebody's hands. It won't start.
Been sitting in the driveway for 3 years. Yeah. Got 170K+miles. Jumped
it, I was shocked that the starter cranked. In the on position, without
turning it over, you can hear the fuel pump actuate and hum in the tank

Any suggestions appreciated.
