    Ok.. here is the deal. I i just bought another civic and it hasnt been ran in 2yrs.. It starts up and everything but it kinda makes a quite knocking noise. im thinking maybe no oil is getting in the engine or something.. I pick it up on saturday and i want to get a tune up, oil change and maybe flush the old fuel out. Any advice on what might be a "must do"???

    hopefully it hasn't been sitting with all the fluids oxidizing ... oil & gas inside.

    Try to get that stuff out of there before you run it again ... new oil/filter, put some high octane in there, & injector treatment too

    i would get new plugs, wires and dizzy cap to. just do a full maintenence on it. check everything that is rubber. bushings, mounts, axle boots, etc.
