Sound like when I bought my Scort. Wouldn´t run more than a minute and a half, muffler was rusted half way off, and leaked oil like a siv. Bought it for $400 (US), threw a new battery in and limped it home. Turns out it need a new alternator, and the oil was leaknig from the filter that was only on by like 2 threads. That baby purrrrrrs like a kitten now. Not to metion it has a cold ass A/C Which I still have to use every now and then even in November. It´s still in the mid 80s during the day. Gotta Love the Desert. How´s the weather in Canada this time of year? Any of that cold white stuff on the ground out there?? I think you guys call it snow.

Hey hadley, try taking out the spark plugs and turning the motor by using a breaker bar and a socket on the crank. If you have to, pour some oil into it while your turning it over. This may or may not work depending on how long it sat! Im not gauranteing it will work but it has for me on a coupl of occasions. Good luck!!

sweet deal!
so how does 15 degrees Fahrenheit feel? that´s near the coldest it´s been during the day so far here, and bound to get colder! it´s even been -40 F in the past winters (which, just happens to be exactly -40 C as well
)
