I have a '01 Quigley V-10. It's been sitting in the garage in NM since October last year, after a weekend trip. I still have 1/2 tank (~20 gallons) gas left over. The starting battery has a Battery Tender on it since, and the charge is topped off as well as fluid in the battery. Plugs have never been out, since it only has 70K miles.
Yesterday, I tried to start the van. The battery turned the starter over well, but I either had no spark or fuel to ignite? This van always started readily after a second of cranking.
I checked the fuel pump cutoff switch by the passenger side panel. The button is down, so I assumed that the circuit is closed. The pump relay clicked when I turn the key for electrical power. Other fuses look good. All lights/radio work.
My first question: Is there a way to make the fuel cutoff button pop up so that I can cycle it? I pressed the buttom, but it's fixed in the down position.
Second question: Would the recent -20F overnight temperature cause some changes in the fuel state so that it is no longer good? I neglected putting in Sta-bil this winter, not expecting the Ts to drop that low.
Final question: Any suggestion for diagnostic?
