Default 94 Camry unusual situation


i have an unusual situation. an elderly family member who has not driven for
years now has offered to give us a 94 camry le with 36K on it.

why hesitate, you ask?

well, it has sat in a garage for about 3 1/2 years and hasn't moved or even
been started in all that time. what might be wrong? dry rot on fluid seals
is the only thing i can think of. do you folks think this will be a problem?
what other damage could there be after 3 1/2 half years of this type of
benign neglect?

anyone have a similar experience like this one?

thank you,

You could have rust on cilinder walls sticking parts in the motor, a
seized motor, Old gas , , messed up fuel system, Rusted bearings ,
alot of stuff can happen. Was it a humid garage, Take it, get it
checked out.

Grab it! You may need a few things
like a battery and fresh fuel, coolant,
trans fluid, etc
but these are low cost things and the
car is free! Just have it checked out
and see what it needs...CV boots may
have rotted, tires might be flat spotted
from sitting. Brakes may make some
noise from rust on the discs but that
will wear off.
