My 1995 C220 has been sitting for almost 6 years. Where do I start for it to turn over? Changed the oil in early May, installed a new battery, everything lights up and cranks...but no start, HELP. Trying to get it together for my 17 year old, just got his license but he isn't touching the other 3 cars!

Codes? Spark at the plugs? Fuel been dumped, any stabilizers put in when she was put up for storage? Lots of electrical issues can crop up in 6 years, how was she stored?

After 6 years I would definitely drain the gas and put fresh in. May have some gunk in the injectors, I would check fuel pressure first thing and make sure you got at least 45 psi or so, it should run at that pressure. Inspect wiring and make sure nothing has been chewed up by an animal. And yes, check for spark at plugs.
