My friend Mikey just bought a 92 Eclipse with front end damage, and supposedly all it needed was a radiator. We did not get a radiator yet, but we have been trying to start it and it won't do anything, not evevn turn over, and he just bought a brand new battery, so then we thought maybe the starter was out, so we tryed to roll start it, repeatedly, and not just pushin it, but pushin it with other cars. and we still got nothin..... The gas that's in it has been in it for about 2 yrs but that wouldn't keep it from starting up would it??? so I got 2 questions (cuz I'm more anxious to get it running than Mikey) where is the starter on a 92 Eclipse (we can't find it anywhere, I'm assuming it's in the back of teh engine bay, somewhere underneath)? and.... if its not the starter, what shuld we try next?

If it won't even turn over, sounds like a connection with the battery, make sure the ground is good, the positive is good.. Make sure the ground is connected to something UNPAINTED and possibly to the FRAME.

ahh if the gas has been in there for 2 hole years its def bad. it should smell strange like varnash. try and drain as much as you can, no thats not your problem with it starting but that will cause some problems later down the road once you do get it to run..
