I have a 2000 mercury sable. Been sitting up for a while, the engine turns over good but will not start, what is the problem?

tried starting fluid but did not work.

The probable cause could be faulty or loose battery. You also need to check if your starter is in a good condition. You also need to check your spark and the fuel supply. You can consider consulting a mechanic for more details.

hmm. thats odd. keep pumping the gas and see what happens. if nothing you might end up having to take off the gas tank and clean it.
