Re: car been sat for just over a year

jacked it up, both back tires not moving, both front tires move (just about), charged battery for about 3 hours, car did NOT start, dash lights just flickered and car went Tick, Tick, Tick ,Tick, changed spark plugs(had some spare) , no difference. 1 spark plug was COVERED in oil (near oil cap), no idea if leak, or just spillage?. took battery charger off car, and it did not have enough power to lock the car lol.

think it is worth getting back on the road or buying a new car??

(i have a 2003 Vauxhall Zafira comfort, 1.8 (7 seater), but my partner is taking her lessons now, and she wants a car of her own lol. a new car would be between 1k-2k??, getting this back on the road, perhaps 400 at the most?? it also need tax and MOT. i only drive it about 3 months after it had its last MOT, then it was sat there ever since.
