2 mos? That is not too long IMO. If you are really worried, put a squirt of oil in each cylinder, run the starter with no plugs in it for a few revolutions, replace plugs and start it up. I went through this process when I was starting a car that had been sitting for about a year. I have left my car at the airport for over a month before, though, and just fired it up. If it were me, I'd just fire it up. :-) KeithG The Trevyn wrote: > I have a question that I hope you fine Saab lovers can help me with.
