My 3 was sitting since Oct. 11th, and I need a little help, I need to know what I need to do to it, before I drive it too much, I know; oil change, and oil filter, also tranny fluid change, and I am going to change the spark plugs... anything else I should do? I did not neglect it, I am in the army and was in the desert for quite a while, for training. I get out April 4th, and have to make a 2,500 mile drive back home... I want to add a cpboost turbo kit, and a whole new exhaust system before I do that as well... any advice I would appreciate the help.

uh

probably just an oil and filter change, maybe put some lucas oil upper cyl lube in the gas tank but tranny fluid and plugs should be fine.

Put some fresh 91 octane gas in it and lucas upper cyl lube with fuel injection cleaner and fuel conditioner ASAP.

Naw man, the company I couldn't get a hold of them... they moved their shop while I was training, and didn't inform their customers... so when my friend went to go the shop was no longer there. I actually filed a police report because I thought they stole my car and the others and brought it to mexico, but they just moved to a larger shop. I know it's completely a bad thing, and that's why I am terrified to drive it... so I'm thinking about doing the oil change and everything right there in his shop... or just have it towed to SVS performance so they can put some forged internals and other parts that I ordered to withstand the turbo kit I'm going to throw in and just do it in his shop either way I don't see myself driving it for a few weeks.

Put the battery on a trickle charge for a few hours. You can change your oil if that makes you feel better but, to be honest, it won't damage anything if you don't. I would fill up the gas tank with fresh gas but wouldn't go so far as to say you need to drain your tank.
