    Good luck with the car. Most guys I know would bend over backwards to help a girl get her car going. Hope it works out.

    Not sure if anyone mentioned this but if it was running 15 years ago, remove old battery (if present) replace with a known good battery. Clean connectors until they shine before connecting them to the battery. If everything works you know that much works.
    Then i guess you could see if the engine turns over. If not but the starter makes a loud clunk when the key is turned i guess you would have to take the spark plugs out and pour a little automatic transmission fluid mixed 50%/50% acetone down the holes with an oilcan. Let that soak for a day or so and see if the engine turns over better.

    Just guessing at this.
